I just spoke to Ed Schultz

Wow. That was a trip. Ed Schultz is a major voice in Progressive radio nationally. He's on XM 167 during the lunch hour, and I listen to him regularly. He was talking about Hillary's "obliterate Iran" comment and made the claim that the Jewish vote "wants a hawkish view" on Israel. I had to call in and correct him on that. The Jewish vote is not monolithic, and Hillary's "obliterate Iran" comment shows a shocking ignorance about the realities in the Middle East. I don't think Jewish voters will be swayed by such arrogant bombasity from Hillary.
