Hillary makes me mad. 


“I think that since we now know Sen. (John) McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that. And I think it’s imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold,” the New York senator told reporters crowded into an infant’s bedroom-sized hotel conference room in Washington.

“I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you’ll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy,” she said.

Calling McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee a good friend and a “distinguished man with a great history of service to our country,” Clinton said, “Both of us will be on that stage having crossed that threshold. That is a critical criterion for the next Democratic nominee to deal with.”

First: the McCage/Hillary '08 thing really isn't a joke, is it?

Second: I don't understand how Hillary has crossed this threshold of which she speaks. Was Hillary tortured in a cage? Does she have a disfigured head? If not, how exactly has she "served our country"?

Third: Despite my anger at the Hillary campaign, I have been resisting saying that I wouldn't vote for her; of course I'd vote for her if she was the Dem nominee. But honestly, if Hillary's definition a qualified commander-in-chief is someone who promises nothing but to continue to wage wars (and if her definition of "a great history of service" is murdering, being tortured in a cage, getting freed, and then doing more murdering), then I really will not vote for Hillary Clinton.
