Clinton threatens to 'obliterate' Iran
As Hillary Clinton continues to try to position herself to the right of Obama in order to lock in her support from blue collar Reagan Democrats, she's come out with some truly shocking phrasing for how she would deal with Iran as president. As Pennsylvanians head to the polls today, this quote may be at the tope of their minds. What impact will it have?
Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton threatened to 'obliterate' Iran if it ever launched a nuclear attack on Israel, in an interview broadcast Tuesday.
'I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran.'
'In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them,' Clinton told ABC News, asked what she would do as president were Iran to launch a nuclear attack on Israel.
The comments came just prior to Tuesday's Pennsylvania primary, a key milestone in the marathon Democratic nominations race pitting Clinton against her rival Senator Barack Obama.
