Hillary Meets Herself

Hillary had a lively exchange with, well, herself of decades ago in Lahore, Pakistan yesterday. When a idealistic young student accused Washington of forcing Pakistan to use military force on its own territory.

Her response, ""If you want to see your territory shrink, that's your choice." She then added she believed it would be a bad choice.
she was also quoted as saying, ""There is a war going on and the U.S. wants to help Pakistan be successful".

Can anyone imagine the Hillary "I loathe the military" Clinton of yesteryear using this speech?

I am not saying Hillary has become conservative or even has a firm understanding or respect of American ideals. Though, I will say she is far warmer to them than any time except maybe her Goldwater Girl days. It is funny what reality can do to youthful idealism.
