Hillary dosey-dos

Sashay to the left, sashay to the right, swing your partner and… Nobody can accuse Hillary Clinton of not learning her triangulation lessons from her politically savvy husband. Monday she’s in Harlem accusing Republicans of running the House like a “plantation,” Wednesday she’s in Princeton accusing the same folks of being soft on Iran. I guess both could be true, but excuse me if I think this is so much political bilge and she knows it. There is something good here, however. Hillary trying to out-hawk Bush on Iran might awaken some of the dead in the Democratic base. The Democratic Party was not always a sewing circle for unemployed isolationists. It might even make it easier to get action on Iran in the Congress.
