Clinton's hawkish stance is a two-edged political sword.
This summer, the reserve Officers Association presented Sen. Hillary Clinton with its President's Award for her work on behalf of soldiers. On the morning of the ceremony, the event's organizers were a little nervous. While they were in the White House, the Clintons were never regarded warmly within the ranks or among the brass, and the First Lady was seen as especially hostile to the military. (There are still soldiers who swear by the myth that she banned uniforms at the White House.) It was rumored that some officers were planning to walk out of the award ceremony. As it turned out, the audience did stand up, but not to leave. When Clinton's name was announced, she received a standing ovation. "If you'd asked me three years ago, I would have been surprised," says Lt. Col. Lou Leto, the group's spokesman. "[But] she's one of our strongest advocates."
It is no accident that hawks inside and outside the military are reconsidering Hillary Clinton. She may have entered the Senate in 2001 with three strikes against hershe was a woman, a Democrat and a Clinton. But Senator Clinton immediately began a methodical campaign to undo her image as a dovish liberal with no interest in military affairs. Post 9/11, she was quick to recognize that Democratsand especially one all but openly running for presidentwere vulnerable on defense issues. It was a trap she has seemed determined to avoid. She supported the Iraq invasion and has resisted the call for a quick withdrawal championed by Democratic Rep. Murtha. "In the wake of 9/11, America will not vote for anyone they do not trust to protect them," says national-security analyst Lawrence Korb. "She grasps that." In New York, Clinton's pro-military posture helped broaden her appeal

I'd rather see proof this constant claim isn't true rather than NewsWEAK tell me it isn't true.
Yep. The MSM will have her ready for 08. Right on schedule.
The whole article is Absolutely false.
No need to pay for advertising when you have reporters doing puff pieces on you. The military has to pay to get positive messages out in Iraq. In the US, the MSM fawns over the honorless Clintons.
Hillary...the political version of Madonna when it come to re-inventing oneself.
Is that photoshopped?
Regardless of the veracity of the image...it is PRICELESS!
Dude! Retract the picture or the poor soldier will be beheaded!
It's not only real, the soldier himself has talked about it publicly, with pride.
No, Hillary is Generally Offensive.
LOL! I was just thinking of that photo.
It's a nice narrative by NewWeak.
Not true, but maybe they can send the script to Geena's show?
I don't know where you GOT that, but THANK YOU, it's a magnificent graphic.
May I share it with others?
Notice how he poses so his name tag stays out of the picture.
Reconstructive surgery always leaves scars. The woman is a raving Left Wing Nut at heart who will convert the USA into something that looks like Canada ( shiver) or worse.
High on Hillary's secret agenda will be:
a) Socialist Health Care system, meaning a reduction in freedom of physician selection and a reduction for elective surgery and a general devolution of individual health care standards.
b) Completely socialist education system where individual merit and student accomplishment will be sacrificed for the failed attempt to educate the minimally motivated "underprivileged." Result: lowering of educational standards in the USA. It takes a village you know.
c) Reduction in military spending just when the USA needs to be the strongest military in the world.This will result in the increasing isolationism of the USA which will lead to WW III, either with Chia, North Korea or in the Middle East with Iran.
d) The loading of our court systems with judges who will feel absolutely free to interpret newly created constitutional rights for homosexuals and other minority life stylists
e) The movement of society generally away from the traditional American model of individual merit towards
f) The statutory banishment of the NRA as an answer to embedded 2nd amendment rights of the citizenry, so the people cannopt defend themselves against newly empowerd minorities who resort to crime and religious persecution
of the American majority
g) The empowerment and radicalization of American Muslims who will link up with Islamofascists under the guise of educational and cultural exchanges. It takes a village you know.
h) An increase in the permeability of our borders so that the "morally superior" Democrat Utopia will spread across the world ( ie open the doors and let violence into our nation)
i) the subrogation of American law and conventions to the United Nations, an organization operated by tyrants who abhor freedom for their own personal, aristoctratic, despotic regimes at home.UN law will become stare decisis in America
j)American endorsement of the international Criminal courts so that the American Military can be subject to international investigation arraignment and punishment for " War Crimes."
k) The endorsement of the USA of the Kyoto Protocol
thereby further hobbling business in the USA who are in direct competition with international businesses who have no such restrictions at home ( ie. China/Russia)
l) The surrender of the Pacific to China, and betrayal of Taiwan, a loss of the Pacific as a US sphere of Influence, and the rsulting alienation of Korea and Japan as those nations join the Chinese Co-propsperity Sphere.
m) The increase of personal and corporate taxes, except for those who are prominant liberals, where there will be several cash cow schemes for envirionmental preservation and alternative energy resources research. These taxes will fund several new welfare programs dedicated to the further emancipation of women from their biological perogative to perpetuate the human race, as a matter of lifestyle choice.
n) Namcy Pelosi will become leader of the Senate or the Secretary of State.
These are just a few of the items on Hillary Clinton's secret agenda, and if any one thinks that these are not her secret leftest agenda, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you!
Hillary Clinton as president would be the end of the USA as we have known it , and will lead to WW III, a war we would likely lose. our granchildren will be attending Mosques when Hillary will have become a memory of infidel defilement.
Who should be the next president of the USA?
The Hammer, Tom Delay!
