You Don't Remember How I Voted on Iraq

Listen to the sound of my carefully cultivated voice...

You are getting sleepy. Very sleepy. Focus on the spinning circle. Isn't it just lovely?

You are thinking of October 16, 2002. There might have been a vote to authorize military force in Iraq, but then again there might not have been. You can't seem to remember.

Remember, look at the circle. Good. That's good.

Even if there was a vote that day-- which is not an established fact-- you don't remember how I voted. Yes, I was the US Senator for New York, and yes I was on the floor that day. But you just can't recall how I voted on the Iraq Resolution that may or may not have passed that day.

Maybe I voted for it. But more importantly, maybe I didn't. Who knows? What you do know is that I have been an advocate for women and children all my professional life. And that's all you need to know.

When I snap my fingers, I want you to wake up and feel very relaxed, refreshed, and absolutely sure that you have no idea how I voted on the Iraq War. One, two, three...

Good. Excellent. Now, where was I? I believe I was talking about my plan to save the middle class and raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans. 

Yes, that's exactly what I was talking about.
