FROM RESET BUTTON TO NAZI TALK, HILLARY THE HAWK RETURNS
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton put some distance between herself and the Obama administration on Russia’s strong-arm tactics in Ukraine. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic frontrunner, compared recent Russian troop deployments in the region to policies implemented by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime. “[This is like] what Hitler did back in the 30s,” Clinton told donors at a charity event in California, according to the Long Beach Press-Telegram. “All the Germans that were ... the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people and that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.’” Later in her remarks, Clinton described Russian ruler Vladimir Putin as a man “who believes his mission is to restore Russian greatness ... When he looks at Ukraine, he sees a place that he believes is by its very nature part of Mother Russia.” More

Reset yourself - Clinton lost her last presidential bid in part because of liberal concerns over her hawkishness on Iraq and Afghanistan. That left the door open to then-Sen. Barack Obama who depicted her as a handmaiden of Bush-era aggression. When Clinton took her post as Obama’s Secretary of State, she seemingly took on much of his geo-political view, including the belief that Russia is more of an ally than adversary. That most painfully revealed itself when Clinton presented her Russian counterpart with a “reset” button (albeit mistranslated). With sharp eyes on her next White House run, Hawkish Hillary has returned to the roost.
