Democratic Party

Screwing Thyself

I'm wondering if this is such a smart thing to keep saying:

“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.

If Senator Clinton wants a general election with national security front and center, should she really be complimenting her potential Republican opponent? And don't national security voters in a general election usually side with the fear mongering Republicans?
