RE THE op-ed "How Hillary lost my vote":
Ms. Spector made a major misstep in suggesting that Sen. Clinton essentially be let off the hook for her Iraq war vote, while Sen. McCain should be held accountable for having "cuddled" up to the Bush administration.
The quotes: "If you had voted against it, would you have been able to have a seat at the table with the big boys or been derided as a weak sister who didn't have enough patriotism to put country ahead of politics?" and "But, perhaps even more than that, I don't want John McCain. Don't get me wrong, I wish he (or anyone) had beaten Bush in 2000. But after eight years of ineptitude, lack of moral rectitude and incompetence, I can't think of any reason that a Republican who has cuddled often enough with the Bush administration should be allowed to continue its missteps."
