But Clinton's focus on MoveOn illustrates a larger tension between the senator from New York and liberal internet activists in the party who are members of MoveOn or frequent visitors to sites like Huffington Post or Daily Kos. Many of the activists were opposed from the beginning to the Iraq War, which Clinton voted to authorize, and were skeptical of the centrist approach of her husband.

Such divisions have deepened during the primaries, even though Obama and Clinton have very similar plans to pull out troops from Iraq.

Hillary Given 'Pink Slip' for Stance on Iraq War

by Julia Duin

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was handed a "pink slip" — a frilly piece of lingerie — yesterday from an enraged group of female war protesters who told her to quit her job because she was not doing enough to oppose military action against Iraq.

The anti-war groups were not happy with Hillary, and her vote sealed her fate with a lot of primary voters....including myself.

haha, I show the anti-war protesters booing Hillary and you just say, weak. It happened, and it cost (IMHO) her the Democratic nomination. Her vote authorizing Bush to declare war in Iraq has been used against her consistently by the "anti-war" protesters for political and propaganda purposes since 2003.

sorry it's not doing it for you. If you would have been involved with the Democratic primaries you might have a clue how the anti war crowd feels about Hillary.

I was too busy going to Rev. Wright's sermons with my new favorite politician.
