Hillary does her best Cheney

I like Hillary. I really hoped she would have done better in Iowa and I don't think she's wrong to suggest she would be a more capable president. But doing her best to channel Dick Cheney is only going to make things worse:
    "'I don’t think it was by accident that Al Qaeda decided to test the new [British] prime minister,' she said. 'They watch our elections as closely as we do, maybe more closely than some of our fellows citizens do…. Let’s not forget you’re hiring a president not just to do what a candidate says during the election, you want a president to be there when the chips are down.'"
The idea that the threat of a terrorist attack should enter into the minds of citizens deciding how to vote is absurd on it's face and unAmerican.
