Hill & Chuck … No, Yes

It should come as little surprise that Hillary and Chuck both voted against the Kerry-Feingold troop withdrawal proposal yesterday, which called for a complete U.S. troop pull-out from Iraq by July 2007. Instead, they raised their hands for the non-binding Reid-Levin proposal, which called for the U.S. to begin a “phased redeployment” this year and set no timetable for a complete withdrawal.

“I simply do not believe it is a strategy or a solution for the president to continue declaring an open-ended and unconditional commitment, nor do I believe it is a solution or a strategy to set a date certain for withdrawal without regard to the consequences,” Clinton said.
