Mrs. Clinton voted against the Senate resolution condemning MoveOn’s “Betray Us” ad: U.S. Senate Roll Call Votes 110th Congress - 1st Session as compiled through Senate LIS by the Senate Bill Clerk under the direction of the Secretary of the Senate Question: On the Amendment (Cornyn Amdt. No. 2934)

Statement of Purpose:To express the sense of the Senate that General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemn personal attacks on the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all members of the United States Armed Forces…
