In Pakistan, Hillary Says Obama-Bush Like 'Daylight And Dark'

So much for politics ending at the water's edge . . .

Hillary Clinton has gone to Pakistan and bragged of having opposed Pres. Bush during her entire Senate career. Clinton also depicted the difference between Barack Obama and George W. Bush as being "like daylight and dark."  

For good measure, Clinton played the moral equivalency card, declaring "we cannot let a minority of people in both countries determine our relationship."  The Pakistani minority she had in mind is presumably composed of al Qaeda and its sympathizers.  Clinton didn't specify which Americans she would equate with them.

Of course this isn't the first time Hillary has denigrated America abroad in playing the moral equivalency card.  In Nigeria in August, she compared the Florida 2000 recount with Nigeria's infamously rigged elections.

Here's the AP report on Clinton's braggadocio before the Pakistani students [emphasis added]:

As a way of repudiating past U.S. policies toward Pakistan, Clinton told the students "there is a huge difference" between the Obama administration's approach and that of former President George W. Bush. "I spent my entire eight years in the Senate opposing him," she said to a burst of applause from the audience of several hundred students. "So, to me, it's like daylight and dark."

America is fighting terrorism around the world, but the difference between "daylight and dark" she sees is that between George W. Bush and Barack Obama?

Will the MSM highlight Clinton's intemperate remarks?  Don't count on it.  Reporting from Pakistan this morning on the Today show, Andrea Mitchell focused on the "tough questioning" Hillary took from the university students.  Mitchell said not a word about the shots Clinton took, on foreign soil, at the previous American president.
