While Secretary of State John Kerry was making the case today on Capitol Hill for limited military strikes on Syria, his predecessor was keeping a low profile. Hillary Clinton did weigh in on the weekend’s big swimming news yesterday, but America was anxious to hear what she had to say about reports of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Today she did express her support of the president, or more accurately, an unnamed aide expressed her support. “Secretary Clinton supports the president’s effort to enlist the Congress in pursuing a strong and targeted response to the Assad regime’s horrific use of chemical weapons,” a Clinton aide told Politico.

That’s a good point. Hillary certainly wouldn’t want an unflattering video (or tweet) to pop up in an opponent’s campaign ad in a couple of years, especially if the U.S. has ground troops in Syria.
