The Times Caucus Blog reports:

As critical as she is about the Bush administration's conduct of the Iraq war, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a relatively rare shout-out to the military's top man in Baghdad, General David Petraeus, calling him "an extraordinary leader and a wonderful advocate for our military."

That's rich. Not too long ago she was telling the general, literally to his face, that one would have to have a "willing suspension of disbelief" to buy into his testimony on the progress of the surge and dodging calls to categorically condemn the disgraceful ad that targeted Gen. Petraeus.
