If I were to pick one section in this country that most "supports the troops" this would be it. These people are hard-core pro-American militant. It seems astounding to me that any of them support Hillary since she is the one who has claimed she would pull the troops out the fastest. I think at one point she even said 60 days after taking office she would do it.
But has Hillary been going around in this region speaking against the Iraq War? Hey, I'm not down there. I don't know. I'm speculating. I'd enjoy hearing from someone who has heard her speak in these areas. Maybe I'm wrong here. But I seriously doubt that she is campaigning in this area as being against the war.
Obama is identified nationwide as the candidate who is against the war in Iraq.
Hillary is identified as the one who lies.
So Hillary's claims that she would stop the Iraq War could very well be, and probably are, lies.
I think that's why support for Hillary in this "Upcountry" region is as strong as it is. Democrats represent the underprivileged, but Hillary represents the pro-war crowd within the Democratic Party.
Correct me if I'm mistaken.
