Early Friday morning, the Senate voted 67-23 to back the Iraq war resolution. One of those who spoke up for the resolution, to some people’s surprise, was Hillary Rodham Clinton, despite the overwhelming number of calls from her constituents against war.

Protests continued against Clinton on Thursday when student protesters staged a sit-in at her New York office.

Today Democracy Now! breaks the sound barrier by interspersing the voices of these protesters with those of Clinton.

Tape:

  • Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY)
  • Jane Hirschmann, author and educational activist.
  • Laura Flanders, journalist.
