Hardball: Is Hillary A Hawk Or A Dove?

Chris Matthews' version of playing "hardball" is to pose the question of whether Hillary Clinton is a "hawk" or a "dove". Of course, he doesn't ask Clinton, but two substitutes: Jon Soltz from VoteVets.org and Buzz Patterson from MoveAmericaForward, Melanie Morgan's hategroup, and author of the oh-so-balanced screed War Crimes: The Left's Campaign to Destroy Our Military and Lose the War on Terror (so I'll let you guess his agenda).

There are so many levels of fundamental dishonesty about the framing of this debate (especially given Matthews' fervor to disgrace all things Clinton), that I could use up the whole front page listing them. While I wish I could share Soltz's confidence in Clinton (which if you listen carefully, he amends slightly to encompass ANY Democrat over a Republican) I'll simply note that Patterson has been taught by his media trainers well: never give the other side a chance to complete a sentence.
