Before the Pennsylvania primary, ABC's Chris Cuomo asked Hillary what she would do if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons. She said in effect that if Iran got nuclear weapons and if they launched them against Israel, we would "totally obliterate Iran".
Wow. One beer and one bump, and she's starting to grow a pair.
Let us say, hypothetically, that I had a superpower. A really cool one. The power to enter someone's mind for a minute or two and do some thinkin' for them. I would love to have entered Hillary's mind when Cuomo asked that question, in the guise of my alter ego, hypothetical question asker.
Hypothetical question asking Hillary: Let me ask you this, Chris. Does Iran have nuclear weapons?
Chris Cuomo: Not currently, senator, but let's say in the future...
Hypothetical question asking Hillary: Does Israel have nuclear weapons?
Chris Cuomo: Yes, but back to my question...
Hypothetical question asking Hillary: Let me ask you, Chris. In a fight between Superman and the Hulk, who would win?
Chris Cuomo: Those are fictional characters, senator, and they inhabit different fictional worlds.
Hypothetical question asking Hillary: So, my question is completely hypothetical, and yours isn't?
Way back when, in the olden days when there were more than a half dozen Democrats running for president, the only guy who got less respect from the press than Dennis Kucinich was former senator Mike Gravel from Alaska. During one of the many, many debates, he said, "Some of the people on this stage frighten me."
You know, senator, in hindsight, you may have been onto something.
