What If?

Mercifully, all is well tonight at the Clinton campaign HQ where hostages were taken earlier today by a man who walked in with a bomb strapped to his chest.

Once the situation was resolved, it was impossible for me not to analogize the situation to the way much of the left looks at Islamofascist terrorism. By that yardstick, one would have to ask: What did Hillary Clinton do to upset this man who threatened to blow up her volunteers? How can she persuade him through dialogue and negotiation (without the use of armed help, in this case, police -- in the case of Islamofascists, the military) not to behave this way again? And if he had been upset that she had a campaign HQ in New Hampshire, then couldn't she just solve the situation by vacating the state -- much as the left (and Ron Paul supporters) apparently believe that we could end the terrorist threat by leaving the Middle East?

Ridiculous line of reasoning, isn't it?
