Interesting argument,however does not cover whether the title of what was voted for says all, or if the fact Bush was to go to the UN first to get agreement before going to war plays a part in those who voted-OEN
“She voted for the war!”
“She’s an unapologetic hawk!”

Hillary Clinton never voted to go to war in Iraq, nor did she support the Bush/Cheney decision to kick out the UN weapons inspectors and invade.
