Hillary Said She'd Give Up 'Some Powers'

Let us not forget who this is coming from. Hillary Clinton said in an interview with the UK's Guardian America that she would in fact be 'willing' to part with 'some' of the unconstitutional executive powers snatched up by the Bush administration. She went on to sidestep a few last questions, but before that scarily mentioned Abraham Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus, obviously stating her apparent approval for a 'temporary' situation such as that, even though what Lincoln did clearly goes against the constitution, of what she is attempting to show support for in this interview. She is clearly letting it be known that she has all the power in the world as president to do the things that the Bush administration did, only she doesn't wish to make them 'permanent.' She says she would do away with 'some' powers, as if that is a logistical answer. There is nothing in the interview that should sway anyone's opinion of her as being nothing more than a neocon sheep in wolves clothing, but if she does plan on speaking up more on these anti-American executive powers, she better be quite aware of her past.
