An article posted earlier this month from “CNN News” titled ‘Lincoln Chafee: Clinton is ‘too Bush-like’ on foreign policy’ ‘By Eric Bradner, CNN Updated 10:33 AM ET, Sun April 12, 2015′ (https://www.cnn.com/2015/04/12/politics/hillary-clinton-lincoln-chafee-bush-election-2016/index.html; obtained on 4-21-2015) began the following way:
“Washington (CNN) Lincoln Chafee is making a bid to be Hillary Clinton’s anti-war foil on the left.
The former Rhode Island senator and governor who this week launched an exploratory committee to seek the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination blasted Clinton’s ‘lack of judgment’ on foreign policy in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday.
He said he and Clinton agree on most domestic policy issues, but ‘have some big areas of disagreement internationally.’
Chafee all but declared his candidacy, saying: ‘I want to be on the stage in November, December and January debating these issues.’
His biggest problem with Clinton, Chafee said Sunday, is her vote in favor of President George W. Bush’s war in Iraq.
‘That was a moment where the premise for going to Iraq was so false that there were weapons of mass destruction, she didn’t do her homework. We live with the ramifications,’ Chafee said. ‘You may say that’s 12 years ago — that’s a big motivator for me running. If you show a lack of judgment, lack of doing homework then, what can we expect in the future?’ ”
