Hillary Clinton to speak on Syria

The former Secretary of State says she supports Obama in going before Congress.
By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 9/8/13 11:02 PM EDT

Hillary Clinton will make her first public remarks about Syria on Monday when she makes a visit to the White House for an unrelated event, a Clinton aide told POLITICO.

The comments, the first since an unidentified aide said last week that the former Secretary of State supports President Obama in going before Congress to get support for a limited strike against Syria, will come after she meets privately with Obama at the White House, the aide said.

She will then appear at an event related to wildlife preservation at the White House, an event where her daughter, Chelsea, is part of the program. Clinton is expected to address Syria at the beginning of the event, in fairly brief remarks, the aide said.

She’s expected to make longer remarks about the issue the following evening, when she gives a speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, where former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be honoring her.

Not only is she speaking in favor of an unpopular war, she is giving the speech at an event where she is about to be honored by a guy named Bush. I would say her Presidential ambitians are finished.
