Rachel Maddow on The GOP's "Blame Clinton" Strategy [VIDEO]

Rachel Maddow investigates the new rationale 2008 GOP candidates are giving for why we went to War in Iraq, they're saying it was Bill Clinton's idea.
In another clever edition of her "Campaign Asylum" series, Rachel Maddow pokes fun at the flailing 2008 GOP presidential candidates as they try to figure out how to best distance themselves from President Bush's "legacy" while at the same time embracing it. Rudy Giuliani has attached himself the most outrageous theory as of late, claiming on David Letterman's show that the Iraq War was really something Bill Clinton wanted to do but he "never got the opportunity." I sincerely hope Bill Clinton will emerge to repudiate those remarks. In the meantime, check out the video to your right.
Rachel Maddow is the host of her own show on Air America Radio. She has a doctorate in political science (she was a Rhodes Scholar) and a background in HIV/AIDS activism, prison reform, and other lefty rabblerousing.
