Senator Clinton doesn’t believe in democracy… or does she?

Originally published 10/26/06:

Hillary Clinton (who definately doesn’t have my support for ’08) is sending a very clear message in this interview with the Jewish Press.  Democracy is apparently ok in other countries, as long as we can do something to determine the winner.

Sen. Clinton: “First, I don’t think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake. If we were going to push for an election, we should have made sure we did something to determine who was going to win instead of signing off on an electoral system that advantaged Hamas.”

Next, she speaks of what democracy should be doing (in a “”flipflop”) saying:

“That’s one of my criticisms of the administration, which has the attitude that it’s their way or no way. I’m not sure any of us have the way. That’s why we need, in a democracy, a vigorous debate. There are a lot of people who may have some good ideas that have basically been ignored up until now.”

Oh, I see, democracy needs new good ideas with vigorous debate and not the same old entrenched leadership with their failed policies?

Perhaps the Palestinians could teach Hillary a thing or two about democracy.
