"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Schumer, Clinton, and Iran

Interesting, but short editorial in the New York Sun this morning regarding recent statements by Schumer and Clinton on Iran.

Schumer (11/29/06): "I really think that they are an evil country, and do you talk to an evil country?"

Clinton (10/31/06): 'accused the Bush administration of "a simplistic division of the world into good and evil. They refuse to talk to anyone on the evil side." She called that "dangerously unrealistic."
My money is one Clinton knowing exactly what she is doing....but what she might be doing is wrong. You cannot play the usual politics with Iran as they take advantage of whatever you say or do. Between now and '08, Hillary will continue to attempt to paint herself as "moderate," but she'll be playing against those that don't follow the usual "polling points."
