I'm concerned regarding Secretary Clinton's remarks. I remember she was one of the first candidates to speak publically of a Palestinian state during her presidential campaign. Now I wonder if these comments on the UN resolution reflect her position or that of the man who ultimately beat her and became president. Is this Obama's thinking or Hillary's? One thing I DO EXPECT is for our president and state department to speak with one voice. By that I don't mean that Hillary must parrot exactly what Obama says, but rather that they BOTH must say at the UN exactly what they have already said through official US channels. Others seem to agree. A number of senior former US diplomats have signed a letter to President Obama. The message of their letter is "If the proposed resolution is consistent with existing and established U.S. policies, then deploying a veto would severely undermine U.S. credibility and interests, placing us firmly outside of the international consensus, and further diminishing our ability to mediate this conflict." I would add that an Obama veto at the UN SC would prove our words are hollow and meaningless. If we do not honor our own words, how can we expect others to honor them?
