Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards are not peace candidates
None will rule out attacking (including nuking*) Iran, something MoveOn apparently lies about in Mrs Clinton’s case.

I imagine that like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi they think they’re beholden to the Israel lobby, which of course the Protestant religious right, and the pols playing them, on the other side of the aisle also serve for their own barmy dispensationalist reasons.


*LRC’s Fr Emmanuel McCarthy (who’s fallible but makes some good points) talks to Fr George Zabelka, who in the US Army served the men who dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and later regretted it. Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, the late head of the Holy Office and defender of the Roman Mass, wanted Rome to condemn the use of nuclear weapons.
