On the stump with Hillary

By Libby

Straight off the campaign trail, this has got to be the quote of the day.

"I don't think I have ever seen the world in such a mess." ~Madeleine Albright

Albright expands on that thought at a campaign stop in Iowa.
"I believe that Iraq is going to go down in history as the greatest disaster in American foreign policy. That means that I am acknowledging it is worse than Vietnam," she told the group.

Albright is advising Clinton on foreign policy and believes the U.S. needs to withdraw from Iraq, stabilize the country, help in reconstruction and use a diplomatic surge.

"Our national security toolbox has a lot of different tools in it, and this administration has basically only used the military tool," she said in an exclusive interview with KCCI. "Diplomacy is the way countries talk to each other and that has not been used enough."

I only wish we were hearing more of that sort of talk from the candidate herself, instead of hearing it by proxy from her advisors.
