Clinton is touting foreign policy?!

Maybe you should stick to a 4-point attack, Hillary. One of the prongs of Ms. Clinton's 5-point attack on Obama includes his lack of experience with foreign policy. Obama's lack of experience does make his actions a bit on an unknown but compared to the experience Hillary is claiming (which is really her husband's experience), I think I'll stick to the unknown. Here's my faavorite quote on the subject:

“We’ve seen the tragic result of having a president who had neither the experience nor the wisdom to manage our foreign policy and safeguard our national security,” Mrs. Clinton said in a speech on foreign policy at George Washington University. “We can’t let that happen again.”

We did let that happen again. We had a President who did absolutely nothing to help our national security even after terrorists bombed the World Trade Center, bombed several of our US Embassies, and even bombed one of our military submarines. Oh no, he did do something. He sent a few criminal prosecutors after the people who carried out the actions, leaving the people in charge of planning free to plan again. He had our federal agencies erect walls between each other so that sharing information between agencies was almost impossible. Bill Clinton had his good moments as President, especially when he stole the thunder of the Contract with America and ran as a conservative in 96. But foreign policy was a complete and utter failure under his tenure. If I were Hillary, I would distance myself from "foreign policy experience" before someone gets the bright idea to run campaign ads showing the aftermath of the aforementioned bombings followed by a "Vote Clinton for National Security" sign.
