In 1994 she apparently stated, "If we use the word 'genocide' and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November congressional election?"
Please bear in mind, it is racist to criticize a person who evidently viewed hundreds or thousands of dead African women, children and men, as so much political fodder. Also, don't forget that it is unjust for Senators to point out that Ambassador Rice, who fell on her sword for Obama, now has a sword sticking out her body. Finally, it would be most unfair to observe that this candidate for our chief diplomat seems to have a preternatural ability to make people on all parts of the political spectrum (e.g., John McCain, Miss Dowd) hate her. Except our president, who probably should get to choose her for State if he wants to. It does make me nervous, however, to nominate somebody who can't seem to tell a lie without getting caught. Nobody ever said that of Kissinger. --TS
