    On S.759, a bill authored by Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) which prohibited any attacks on Iran without explicit Congressional approval, there were three - count them, three - cosponsors.

    Guess who one was?

    Sen. Hillary Rodhan Clinton (D-NY).

    And guess who one wasn't?

    Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).

    The bill was unquestionably designed to make it harder to charge into Iran without an extended debate, Clinton backed it and Obama did not - both were serving Senators at the time. Therefore, Clinton, ipso facto, is not going to be "more likely" to go into Iran than Obama would. It died in committee, but that's beside the point.
