US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Saturday that a boycott of the run-off election in Afghanistan by runner-up Abdullah Abdullah would not de-legitimise the poll.
Clinton, who was asked whether the outcome of a run-off with only one candidate would result in a legitimate government, said such situations are "not unprecedented" and occur in the United States and other countries.
Has this woman totally lost her mind?!?!?
A single-candidate election will scream far and wide that this was only window dressing to make it appear that Karzai had been re-elected, rather than re-appointed.
Should this happen, the world will understand very clearly what a complete sham this alleged "runoff" has been.
