Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday she would not have attacked Iraq if she were president in 2002 and would end the war if elected, as she tried to blunt rivals like John Edwards who are stoking anti-war passions in the Democratic Party.
"Believe me, I understand the frustration and the outrage," Clinton said in a speech to the Democratic National Committee meeting that brought the party's nine White House hopefuls together for the first time. "You have to have 60 votes to cap troops, to limit funding to do anything. If we in Congress don't end this war before January 2009, as president, I will."

Promises mean nothing

Promises mean nothing. The US is a dictorship. Look at Bush he does whatever he wants. Politicians will give the public as many promises as possible and then when it is time to pay the bill they have finite excusses.

How about new representation? Enough Bushes and Clintons. It has been 24 years of those families are there any other families with enough brainpower to be president?

A politician's promise

She promises to end war if elected, and not a moment sooner.  What will she do if not elected, vote to continue war?

It would make more sense to promise to win the war if elected.  Then if it ends before election day she can say it was not ended properly and once in office she can advocate for more war if she chooses in order to secure the best victory.

Of course, one of the most frequent excuses cited by politicians is that if they knew then what they know now, then they wouldn't have done what they did that made people angry.
