I thought of this article, about how the MAL has basically been a front for Soviet propaganda for decades and so dedicated that they’re staying with the program long after the USSR fell, when I heard Senator Hillary Clinton going on about Senator Barak Obama on the radio.

You can think big but remember you shouldn’t always say everything you think when you’re running for president because it could have consequences across the world and we don’t need that right now

Perhaps Clinton ought to discuss that with Eric Edelman as well.

Clinton slammed Edelman for saying that public statements of defeat and timelines by Democratic Congressmen could have consequence in Iraq, the exact same thing she said about Obama.

It wasn’t that request in particular, but more of a general comment by Edelman which was triggered by the request.
