Short Honeymoon?


From USA Today on Secretary of State Clinton:

Some leaders of anti-war groups are dismayed that Obama, whose national ambitions were launched by his opposition to the invasion of Iraq, would give such a key role to someone who supported it.

“One of the ways in which he separated himself from Hillary Clinton during the primary season was to remind people that early on he was opposed to the war in Iraq, was opposed to her position, which was always quite supportive of war,” says Leslie Cagan, national coordinator of United for Peace and Justice, a coalition of anti-war groups.

She calls the prospective nomination of Clinton “quite disappointing” but says the “real question” will be the policies Obama himself sets.
