"Triangulation" In Play

Hildebeeste, the "wife" of X42, emits stentatorian burps and "I'm Running" fog:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq would be "a big mistake." While professing "the greatest respect" for Rep. Jack Murtha of Pennsylvania, the ex-Marine who called for a troop pullout last week, Clinton said, "I think that would cause more problems for us in America."

On the other hand, she said, the administration's pledge to stay in Iraq "until the job is done" amounts to giving the Iraqis "an open-ended invitation not to take care of themselves."

The right approach, Clinton suggested, would be for the U.S. to await Iraq's Dec. 15 elections for a clue about how soon the Iraqis can take over.

You noticed that last week, X42 pronounced that the Iraq War was "a mistake."

Here's how it works: X42 takes care of the left-wing extremists, making certain that they remain in the Clinton camp. In the meantime, Hildebeeste becomes a "centrist." It's a role-reversal of the 1992/96 campaigns, but let's face it: it worked before.
