Sometimes in politics, the best option is to just keep quiet and allow the other person to tie their own noose and slowly strangle themselves.
Hilary Clinton must be thinking her Christmas and Birthday have come together as Barack Obama takes his size 9 wing tip and plants it firmly in his mouth.
Boom Boom Obama said President Bush should have concentrated on Afghanistan and Pakistan and would not hesitate to use force to take out those who pose a threat to the US in Pakistan, with or without Pakistan President, Pervez Musharraf's, permission.
One can only assume that Obama's logic is to try and appeal to the Fox News viewership to try and broaden his appeal and say to the right wing that he can be just as irresponsible as any Republican war-monger that has two conflicts on the go and is getting his arse handed to him on a plate.
Unless i am very much mistaken, it is naivety of the most spectacular kind that see's a Presidential hopeful run on a campaign of promising to send troops into yet another Asian country when you are still receiving home the body bags from the last two.
Mrs Clinton is watching her rivals drop off one by one and with the exception of Al Gore stepping in, she can be confident she will be measuring up the curtains for the White House in November 2008 if it continues.
