Hillary and the Anti-War Left
by

Byron York was here for Hillary Clinton’s speech, and reported:

“We’re going to end the war in Iraq and finally bring home the troops,” she said as a number of Code Pink protesters stood up in the audience. When she declared, “The American military has done its job,” boos began to be heard around the room. As the boos increased, Sen. Clinton raised her voice. “The American military has succeeded,” she said, to more boos. “It is the Iraqi government that has failed to make the tough decisions.” Still more boos.

Again, it’s important to heed Shawn’s point that there’s an active Code Pink contingent here, but they don’t speak for everybody. In my post below on Nancy Pelosi, I mentioned how she was heckled, but at the same time there were people shushing the protestors and she was well-received by most of the audience.

As for Hillary, I think it can only be good for her, especially given her general election strategy, to get booed by Code Pink types, especially for saying things such as “The American military has done its job.”
