Uninformed Voters--but Hillary's the uninformiest!

There's a bit of a weird story at CNN right now, reporting that Hillary Clinton (along with nearly every other Senator and Representative who voted for the Iraq War resolution) didn't read "a key intelligence report before the 2002 vote to authorize war in Iraq."


Clinton did not read the 90-page, classified National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq, according to "Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton."
For members of Congress to read the report, they had to go to a secure location on Capitol Hill. The Washington Post reported in 2004 that no more than six senators and a handful of House members were logged as reading the document.
Okay, so bad form from Hillary...and lots of other people. But the singling out of Hillary, who was, according to a spokesperson, "briefed on the intelligence report multiple times," gets even weirder as the story goes on.
