In a bit of déjà vu of her 2008 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton is once again under fire in Iowa for her vote in favor of the Iraq War.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a long-shot potential 2016 rival to Clinton, took a thinly veiled shot at the former Secretary of State’s war vote on Wednesday during a speech to the liberal group Progress Iowa in Altoona, CNN’s reports.

“When George Bush got a bunch of [Democrats] to vote for that war, I was just shaking my head in Montana,” Schweitzer told the liberal audience.

The Republican research group American Rising  posted video of Schweitzer’s comments on Thursday.

I remember the Iraq War being fairly popular when it was being voted on by Congress.  I'm sure there are a lot of politicians that after the fact would like to change their vote.  One of the consequences of having professional politicians is the loss of the ability to vote their conscience.
