“The opening grafs stand out,” Beeton continues, quoting from the endorsement of Sen. Clinton:
Immediately after taking office, President Hillary Clinton would begin preparations to withdraw American troops from Iraq.
She would send a message to world leaders that the United States intends to rejoin the community of nations.
She would make clear to federal employees that they must heed the Constitution.
She would reverse Bush-era policies that have harmed the environment.
Todd Beeton quotes more from the Concord Monitor‘s endorsement of Clinton:
She would quickly sign legislation supporting stem-cell research and expanding children’s health insurance.
She would lift the gag rule prohibiting international family planning programs from counseling poor women about abortion.
Many White House administrations start off slowly, as green presidents fumble through their early months, unsure how to bend Washington to their will. Come 2009, America will be unable to afford such squandered time.
Clinton’s ambitious to-do list for her first few weeks in office gives us confidence that her priorities are right and that she would act swiftly to make a positive difference. She is the Monitor’s choice in the Jan. 8 Democratic primary. …

(Personal note: I’ve been spending more and more time at MyDD because, while there are supporters of all the Democratic candidates, the dialogue is respectful and substantive, as opposed to another “liberal” orange blog. For one thing, one can find recommended diaries about Edwards, Obama, Clinton, Dodd, and other candidates, and not have to wade through lots of attacks. MyDD is a blog for grown-ups.)
