Schweitzer Goes After Hillary’s Achilles Heel

Last night in Iowa, former Montana Governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate Brian Schweitzer went after Hillary Clinton on the issue that damaged her 2008 candidacy the most: her vote to authorize the war in Iraq.

SCHWEITZER: “So when we were attacked at 9/11 by seventeen Saudis and two Egyptians who called themselves Al Qaeda who weren’t welcome in Iraq, and George Bush got a bunch of Democrats to vote to go to that war I was just shaking my head in Montana. I watched, I watched nonstop Robert Byrd, in maybe, maybe some of the last few years he had his voice and power as the senior member of the United States Senate don’t do this again. They wouldn’t listen.”
