Re:So it was Clinton who lied?
She's saying it wasn't proved to them that it was so. I don't think she is assigning blame.
Re:Re:So it was Clinton who lied?
I got the impression that in the gray/gray world of intel there has to be many discussions with many points of view represented. And that she did not think this happened before bush charged unprepared into the conquest of Iraq.

I get the impression that the Monday morning perspective does wonders for one's judgement.

that it's best to ignore your bait.
A pity Hillory isn't standing for president
She is obviously a great deal more honest than Clinton, and a great deal better looking than Kerry.
We had a female Prime Minister and she was very strong. I realise it wouldn't do the Republicans a whole lot of good if she stood, and was a success.
Just a point of view on my part, speaking as an outsider, and with no affiliation with either party.
Sorry ........Hillary.......not hillory :( nt
Some think she has already
Not sure who will agree and disagree, but I honestly susupect she made more of the policy decisions than 'ole Bill did.
Wouldn't be the first time of course, government by proxie you could call it I guess. Lots of first ladies probably had huge influence on their husbands. Just some I suspect when beyond influence.

It has always been of interest to me
Just how many decisions are made based on discussion with their wives. The close proximity must have the effect of shared ideas.
Good point Roger.
It's tempting to think so, but I didn't see a major Hillary role.
Look how she mucked up health care, Tyson chicken, and the pharmacuetical industry.
Re:A pity Hillory isn't standing for president
Sorry, can't agree with you there. Her honesty is parallel to her husband's. If she were elected, I fear that would be the last woman President for the next century or more. She will try to enact a radical agenda that will cause much backlash. I sure hope women don't vote for her merely for her gender when she does run.
I must admit Evie - being thousands of miles away - over the pond
I don't get to hear much about her.
I doubt if she would ever run for President, since she would be the first potential women President, and that in itself holds too many unknowns to even risk it.
My history of the U.S is not nearly as good as yours.
Would I be right in saying that there has never been a women President elected?

Consider yourself lucky
Oh she will run for President. Current buzz is whether or not she will run as Veep this go round. The logic being that if she sees Kerry's candidacy as not hopeful of winning, but viable enough for her to unload her negative baggage as a national candidate in '04, she'll sign up. She doesn't want him to win, cuz no way will Hillary want to put off her own run until 2012 (and if Kerry were to -- God forbid! -- win, it would be highly unusual for a VP to challenge a sitting Prez for his second term). If she sits this round out, she will be a leading candidate in 2008 -- that is if she survives her 2006 Senate challenge (run Rudy run!!!!) and the brewing FEC fundraising issues that will bubble to the surface shortly.
Can you tell I'm not a fan? IMO, a successful female President would have to appeal broadly to women AND men of both parties. Hillary's negatives are just too (well deservedly) high for that. If she did manage to win the office, I just can't fathom there being eventual backlash. Geraldine Ferraro is a fine woman who ran for VP with Mondale. While I really don't think it is fair to pin the failure of that ticket on her, there does seem to be a tangible air of "gun shy" hovering around our national politics and there hasn't even been a woman strongly considered since that I recall. The "Hillary factor" is so much bigger. I can't for the life of me understand the appeal Hillary has to those who respect her. JMO.
