Not a far leftist any longer?
Most conservatives hate Hillary Clinton with all of their hearts. They would rather see anyone than Hillary in the White House, whether that would be Obama, Edwards, or Fidel Castro. They would hate to see any Democrat president, but loathe the idea of President Clinton II. Mrs. Clinton's far left label is well deserved, as seen by her socialized health care scheme, her "it takes a village to raise a family" mentality, and her very liberal past (including her stint as an attorney for the Black Panthers). What is amazing though, and perhaps a little frightening, is the thought that right now, when compared to the rest of the leaders of her party-Hillary isn't all that far to the left! She hasn't moved to the right, her party has moved left. Remember Harry Reid's despicable "the war is lost" comment? Or John Murtha announcing that US troops should redeploy to Okinawa, and that US troops kill in cold blood? Most of the Democrats want to pull out of Iraq now, and not bother waiting to give the surge or General Petraeus time to work. (Kinda makes you wonder why they voted in Petraeus if they believed that he was wasting his time. Come to think it, if the war is such a bad idea, why won't they defund it? That is within their rights, and there is nothing the President could do). Hillary is probably the most hawkish Democrat. She is also the most pro-Israel of the Democrats. (Many Democrats seem to view Israel as worse than the terrorists Israel fights. Look at the writings of popular liberals Michael Moore and Jimmy Carter). Who would have believed five years ago that Hillary Clinton, of all people, would represent the right wing of the Democrat party?
This not to suggest, of course, that Hillary is anything but a leftist. However, she is no longer a far leftist. That dubious title has been taken by the Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, and Harry Reid wing of the Democrat Party. For all her sins, Hillary hasn't gone to terrorist countries against the will of the President to advance her own rouge diplomacy, called the troops murderers, or decided to call the war in favor of the vicous Islamofacist Al-Qaeda terrorists. Hillary is no longer a radical.
