|March 17, 2008--In a major policy speech on Iraq, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) outlined steps she would take to end the war "as responsibly and quickly as possible." [transcript, fact sheet]|
|Responses: A statement
from the McCain campaign communications director Jill Hazelbaker
Clinton with making "intellectually dishonest attacks." The Obama
campaign held a conference call in the afternoon. Obama senior
policy advisor Susan Rice termed Clinton's speech "in large measure a
and repackaging of the speech Sen. Obama gave on Sept. 12." Rice
said Clinton left a number of questions unanswered and is playing
with the issue of Iraq.
Ed. note: Clinton's remark "I remember landing under sniper fire" at the beginning of the speech seriously hurt her campaign.
