From the Guardian, an opinion page piece on HRC’s hard-to-ignore outreach to those who should be shunned:

he Clinton campaign has now spent months trying to convince relatively obscure former Republican officials to endorse her campaign while also adopting many Republican slogans and arguments in her quest for the presidency …

Clinton gave a speech in Ohio on Wednesday with yet another former Bush official, James Clad. The speech was billed as touting “American exceptionalism”, one of the more repellent nationalistic concepts that Republicans have used to shame progressives in the past. She spoke mostly about foreign policy, a subject in which Clinton – with her penchant for supporting foreign wars and beefed up US military presence everywhere – seemingly has more in common with mainstream Republicans than the Obama administration.

To paraphrase Julian Assange: Cholera or gonorrhea?

    I would really love being wrong about my prediction, that HRC will be a warbringer, but unfortunately i don’t seem to be the only one expecting precisely that.
    Marine Le Pen, leader of the french “front national” (right wing party), said exactly the same thing about her when she was asked for her favoured candidate.
    Of course she is only some kind of french nazi, so we can safely ignore her opinion…

    But she’s a nice-looking and entertaining French nazi.

    Escalation in Syria or getting into a war with Iran are the two likeliest scenarios, I think.

    The current media focus is clearly on attacks against Putin and Russia, so I fear it will be Syria to get an excuse for war with the old enemy.
