She certainly made her point, but it was very low-key. This was the prediction that a few staffers made to me last night. Obviously she had to say something that would present an anti-war view, but she would be deterred from creating any big fireworks by the relative calm that has overtaken Iraq. I don’t think she said or did anything in this hearing that will help her too much politically.
Last night, I had suggested a Petraeus hearings drinking game. The only rule I could think of right away is that you had to down an entire bottle of whiskey immediately if Petraeus used the terms “sniper fire” while being questioned by Clinton.
