Hillary in the Hot Seat

Bad week for Hillary Clinton. She's reaching.
WOLFEBORO, N.H., Aug. 24 -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton drew outrage from her opponents for the Democratic presidential nomination on Friday after saying that a terrorist attack in the United States would give Republicans an edge in the 2008 race.

She said:
"But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world," she said. "So I think I'm the best of the Democrats to deal with that, as well."

Senator Clinton is not only angering her Democratic rivals, but our Iraqi allies as well
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki lashed out on Sunday at U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton who had called for him to be replaced.

She's way ahead in the polls, and shouldn't need to make such controversial statements. Isn't the cardinal rule for a front-runner before the primaries just not to 'F' up?
