CIC Hillary...?

"...On a conference call, top strategist Mark Penn just told reporters that in the next two weeks Hillary Clinton will go after Barack Obama on the issue of who is better qualified to be commander-in-chief...

The Clinton team was asked whether the not- qualified- to- be- commander- in- chief criticism of Obama was going too far, given that it would be used by Republicans against Obama if Obama is the Democratic nominee against John McCain.
"We don't believe that he is the one who will face John McCain," Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said. "This is a legitimate question that Sen. Obama would face if he were the nominee, and it is a question that he is facing as a result of criticism from Sen. McCain now, so I think it's perfectly appropriate." (source)

I was so depressed thinking about Obama as President that I hadn't even allowed myself to think of him as Commander in charge of the decisions, lives and finances of our military. I think I have to agree with Mark Penn and say that the better of two nightmares would be CIC Hillary--at least as the first woman Prez, she would want to look tough and not fall into passive womanly stereotypes...
