    WASHINGTON Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is standing more clearly than ever in the middle ground on the Iraq War and taking some sharp fire from the antiwar left for doing so.

    In the past two weeks, the New York senator and prospective Democratic presidential candidate who voted to authorize the war in October 2002 has made it clear that she won't join the rush to set a quick timetable for withdrawing American troops.

    "I disagree with those who believe we should pull out, and I disagree with those who believe we should stay without end," she told an audience in Chicago on Saturday - after authorities dragged away a few noisy antiwar protesters who tried to disrupt her speech.

    At the same time, Clinton has continually criticized the Bush administration's handling of the war, producing some carping from Republicans.

    But that carping doesn't compare with what Clinton has been facing from the left.

    on Hillary...she will say or do anything to get elected...she is very good at shifting toward popular belief..then once elected goes back to her Socialist/Communist ways...what she says and what she will do are two different issues!

    very early on, probably from their communist professors in college, that one must put up a front of "beliefs" or most Americans would never vote for them. She's just like ole Billy Jeff Clinton an opportunistic liar. But now the poor thing is caught between a rock (Iraq?) and a hard place because the wacky left in her party is putting pressure on her to join the "cut and run crowd". She's going to have trouble with the left (are there any other kind) in the Dem party which she never envisioned. After all she expects not to be elected the Dem nominee during the primaries but to be coronated. Serve that worthless gal right if the Dem left pushes her into the Pelosi, Kerry, Murtha, etal camp of gutless cowards.
