Likely Dem rival attacks Hillary’s record at State Dept. AND Senate

At least one Democrat is not walking lock step behind Hillary Clinton for president.

Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, who is considering a run for the presidency in 2016 himself, took some swings at the former secretary of state Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“What kind of accomplishments did you have? There were precious few,” he said.

He also took a shot at her Senate performance, particularly when she voted for war with Iraq.

“There was an age of lasting peace ahead of us if we made good decisions, particularly after Sept. 11,” he said.

“She didn’t do her homework, and we live with the ramifications today,” he continued. “If you show lack of judgment, lack of doing your homework then, what can we expect in the future?”

Conservatives might think that whole “lasting peace ahead of us” stuff just makes Chafee sound as nutty as the next leftist — and it wouldn’t have a chance in the rational part of the country, but the Democrat base is so loony, so extreme, it just might eat this kind of thing up in a primary contest.

And Chafee left little doubt that he would be running for the Democratic nomination.

“It’s a big motivator for why I’m running,” he said.

“I want to be there in November, December and January on the stage debating these issues,” he said before calling Elizabeth Warren a “prophet” and saying he wanted her support.

“I would like to have Senator Warren’s support and her legion of followers,” he said.

And her tribesmen. Don’t forget her tribesmen.


Big derision at Hillary’s big delay: ‘depends on what your definition of noon is.’

Judge Jeanine destroys Hillary’s sham of caring; ‘you blame the victim and you laugh.’

‘SNL’ nails it mocking Hillary’s big announcement: ‘I WILL be your LEADER!!!!’

Presidency isn’t a ‘hereditary right,’ Dem says on Hillary’s dynasty day; are Republicans listening?
