mission ready (3.00 / 2)
Larry can you please explain what facts point to the statement espoused by supporters as "... that Hillary Clinton is the most Mission Ready individual to be our next Commander-In-Chief?"  From what I have seen regarding her statements she has exagerated her situation in the Balkans, has never really had a substantial role in any foreign policy issues, or really played in anything I would consider critical for "mission ready."

Regarding votes, every time the votes issue comes up it comes with the inclusion of FL and MI, both of which are contestable races.  MI because Sen. Obama played by the rules and kept his name off the ballot and FL because Sen. Obama played by the rules and did not campaign in FL.  If we exclude MI and FL, contestable races, Obama leads the popular vote by over 450,000 votes.  Include FL where he was on the ballot and he still leads by over 163,000 votes. Over 40% of MI votes cast were Uncommitted which can only be attributable to frustrated Obama supporters who could not have their votes counted.  That would put Obama ahead of Clinton if they were counted.

So let's cut through the rhetorical statements that Sen. Clinton leads the popular vote.  It's a false claim that can't be backed by fact.

Every time a bar is hit by Obama, Sen. Clinton keeps moving the bar of victory a little further.  Come the end of next week Sen. Obama will be the nominee and we need all the rhetoric to stop and Sen. Clinton to concede.
