A Wink and a Nudge

Triangulation . . .

The Clintons have a serious problem, and a typically brilliant solution.

Problem:
1. They know the Orthodox component of the NY State electorate (as well as the thoughtful and the conservatives) realize that scampering off in Iraq will lead to additional pressure from strengthened Sunni terrorists and from Iran on Israel.

2. They also know that they cannot back continued involvement in the war because they will lose the Democratic base, and thereby Hillary's presidential nomination.

Solution:
A much publicized 'difference of opinion' between 'husband and wife' on the war. Wife, to ensure senatorial reelection in NY State, backs the war. Husband trashes us in public, in Dubai, to the enthusiastic cheers of the terrorists' coreligionists and kin.

Are you pro-Israel?
I'm all for security and holding terror in line!
Are you a peace loving hater of American hubris and aggression?
You know that Hillary and I are really on your side.
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Brilliant!

very disappointing. the clintons push the Agudah Convention off the blog? The opening night Drashas were superb. Of course will their sentiments concretize into real steps to confront the many issues facing the American Jewish community is yet to seen. Yes even the internet was mentioned but not in terms of reconcilliation with modern technology. The idea thrown out as possible solution to the many crises facing American Jewry was a national tax to gather more monies to combat the many crises. Somehow all of this smacked of big liberal government. maybe you weren't too far off with talking about the clintons rather than the convention.
