Forward, MARCH!

As far as I know, Hillary Clinton never served in the military. However, she certainly seems to be familiar with the concept of an about-face.

Let’s go back a few months ago, shall we?

"When the phone rings, whether it's 3 p.m. or 3 a.m. in the White House, there is no time for speeches and on-the-job training," Clinton declared with a smile in front of a group of retired generals, admirals and other military types. Her military supporters rushed to answer the phone imagery.

"Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, I will bring a lifetime of experience, and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002."

Given those remarks, does anybody actually buy this line of talking points offered on Friday?

"To anyone who voted for me and is now considering not voting or voting for Sen. (John) McCain, I strongly urge you to reconsider," said Clinton, beseeching her supporters to join with Obama's "to create an unstoppable force for change we can all believe in."

Huh. It seems that just three months ago there was nothing to believe in, Hillary. Now all of a sudden eloquent speeches, vapid slogans and on-the-job training are all the rage? Or is the sudden shift in attitude due to the prospects of an Attorney General Hillary Clinton?

I guess we’ll have to stay tuned!
