    I think that it is better to say that Clinton used to have a solid sense of right and wrong, such as when she pointed out, many years ago, that the Palestinians deserve a state too. Then she sold her soul for political expediency. The sad fact is that a film filled with praise from Israeli leaders does not bode well for the possibilities of peace between Arabs and Israelis. If the film had included praise from Palestinians as well, then it would hint at more balance. But the sad truth is that, given Israel's currrent political trajectory, the conflict will only be solved when the Western world is willing to impose harsh sanctions on Israel. An American President who is already climbing into Israel's back pocket now is not a good thing for long-term peace. She might be a good thing for long -term discord and conflict.
