Arrested at Hillary's Place
Protestors against the Iraq War visited the offices of Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton in Des Moines, Iowa. Neither office seems to have viewed the visit as an opportunity to win support. But it did provide a measure of the real difference between the Giuliani and Clinton campaigns: six hours. That was the time interval between the first call to the police by the Giuliani camp until the second call to the police from the Clinton campaign.
According to Mike Ferner, the protestors wanted Clinton to respond to a letter they had sent asking her to pledge "to take the necessary concrete steps to end the Iraq war, to rebuild Iraq, to foreswear military attacks on other countries, and to fully fund the Common Good in the U.S." Seems reasonable enough to me.
What they got was the door.
