A Whiff of Fascism

Everyone knows the basis of Senator Clinton's political appeal: she and her husband are the most ruthless employers of mass propaganda in contemporary political life. The interesting thing about Senator Clinton is that she's the first person to admit to it:
It's a horrible prospect to ask yourself, 'What if? What if?' But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world," she said.

"So I think I'm the best of the Democrats to deal with that as well," she concluded.
In other words, if a major terrorist attack on the United States succeeds between now and the election, Senator Clinton claims to be the Democrat best able to undermine the government and seize power (in the election, of course). Does anyone else smell that whiff of fascism in the air?

Updates:

Senator Clinton, the so-called democrat, issues dictation to the Iraq parliament:
In a statement released by her Senate office, Clinton echoed a call by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin for Iraq's Parliament to oust al-Maliki in favor of a leader who could restore order to Iraq's unity government.

"During his trip to Iraq last week, Senator Levin ... confirmed that the Iraqi government is nonfunctional and cannot produce a political settlement because it is too beholden to religious and sectarian leaders," Clinton said. "I share Senator Levin's hope that the Iraqi Parliament will replace Prime Minister Maliki with a less divisive and more unifying figure when it returns in a few weeks."
In other news, a Huffington Post columnist calls for a military coup to remove President Bush as Commander-in-Chief (boldface in original, hat tip: instapundit):
General Pace - you have the power to fulfill your responsibility to protect the troops under your command. Indeed you have an obligation to do so.

You can relieve the President of his command.

Not of his Presidency. But of his military role as Commander-In-Chief.
