either the bbc isn't that good at reporting the news, or someone's campaign may be a hair out of touch.
"The economy once again emerged as the most important issue for voters, with more than 80% of those surveyed saying the nation was already in a recession.
On Tuesday, Mrs Clinton emphasised what she says is a strength - her leadership ability and foreign affairs credentials."
hmm, economy, #1. clinton stresses foreign policy & leadership. which one of those is economy.
and then she said, "If I'm the president, we will attack Iran... we would be able to totally obliterate them."
sure, it was in response to the idea that iran had attacked israel, so it wasn't like it was some sort of preemptive strike on them (cough cough, i'm looking at you mc cain). but, obliterate isn't exactly the type word that cries out diplomacy, or even wise foreign policy.
what it does remind me of is a certain other president that loved to sabre rattle. but he was a decider, so i guess it all works out.
