Dodd: ‘I Made A Mistake’

Asked about his 2002 Iraq vote on Hardball yesterday, Sen. Chris Dodd took a different tack than “If I had known then what I know now” Hillary.

“I made a mistake,” Dodd told host Christ Matthews. “I know you’re not supposed to say that in politics.”

Asked about the situation in Iraq, Dodd said he was “skeptical” of reports of Iranian meddling and that as president, he would open up negotiations with the Syrians in order to get around Iran. (“We need a surge in diplomacy.”)

He didn’t bring up the question of a nuclear Iran.
