Willing suspension of disbelief

Over the last week and a half, much flip flap was made over Senator Hillary Clinton statement to General Petraeus-from USA Today

Petraeus and Crocker testified for the second day before Congress, this time at the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Service committees. Among the presidential candidates there, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., said their testimony requires "the willing suspension of disbelief."

The media loved it.

As smart as Hillary is, I am surprised she did not realize that this statement will come back to bite her over and over again, during this entire campaign.

After Hillary's vote yesterday to not support the troops or General Petraeus by condemning the ad, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney had this to say-

"Hillary Clinton had a choice. She could stand with our troop commander in Iraq, or she could stand with the libelous left wing of her party. She chose the latter. The idea that she would be a credible commander-in-chief of our armed forces requires the willing suspension of disbelief."

Good shot Romney.

Yeah, I should say- this statement by Clinton will reappear over and over again and make for great political fodder, as she runs for President
