Hillary Hearts MoveOn

The Senate today passed, 72-25 with three abstaining, the Cornyn Amendment which condemns the MoveOn.org “Betrayus” ad in the New York Slimes. Here’s the text:

To express the sense of the Senate that General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemn personal attacks on the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all members of the United States Armed Forces.

To nobody’s surprise, Hillary Clinton voted against the amendment. Every Republican voted for the amendment, these Democrats voted for it while these Democrats voted with Hillary. The best remark so far comes from the Romney campaign:

Hillary Clinton had a choice. She could stand with our troop commander in Iraq, or she could stand with the libelous left wing of her party. She chose the latter. The idea that she would be a credible commander-in-chief of our armed forces requires the willing suspension of disbelief.
