ABC News: Clinton on Iran: If They Attack Israel, We Could 'Obliterate Them'

ABC News: Clinton on Iran: If They Attack Israel, We Could 'Obliterate Them': "In an ad that began airing in Pennsylvania Monday morning, Clinton implies she is tougher than Obama.

'Who do you think has what it takes?' the narrator asks in an ad depicting historical images of crises that presidents have had to deal with: Osama bin Laden, headlines about the stock market crash of 1929, long gas lines from the 1970s oil-shocks, images of the Cold War, Hurricane Katrina and soldiers. It features the first image of Osama bin Laden to be used in a TV ad this political season."

She is drawing the line between them very clearly where foreign policy is concerned. The left wing of the party won't like this, but apparently she is giving up on them for now and focusing on the centrist Democrats who always supported Bill...and who could conceivably vote for McCain if Obama gets the nomination and they decide he is too far to the left for them. And check out this "obliterate them" line:

"ABC News' Chris Cuomo asked Clinton what she would do if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons.

"I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran," Clinton said. "In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them." "
