Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton warned President George W. Bush on Wednesday not to take any military action against Iran without getting congressional approval first. "If the administration believes that any, any use of force against Iran is necessary, the president must come to Congress to seek that authority," Clinton said in a Senate speech. Clinton, a member of the Armed Services Committee, voted in 2002 to give Bush the authority to use military force in Iraq - a vote that has prompted some Democrats to demand that she repudiate. "It would be a mistake of historical proportion if the administration thought that the 2002 resolution authorizing force against Iraq was a blank check for the use of force against Iran without further congressional authorization," Clinton said. She also insisted the resolution authorizing force against those responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks did not allow for US action now against Iran.
