Clinton "Jihad" Against Vouchers

Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader for pointing out the crazy comment from Senator Clinton that closes Elizabeth Green's Obama recent voucher story (Obama Open to Private School Vouchers): 

"Asked the same voucher question by the Milwaukee paper, Senator Clinton had a strong response, saying she opposes vouchers because they hurt public schools and could also open up the possibility of using taxpayer dollars to finance dangerous schools including training grounds for "jihad."

Here's Green's source:  Clinton covers range of subjects.  However, this view from Clinton may not be new,  Above is a clip of Clinton talking about religious discrimination and vouchers that says much the same thing.  I think it's from last summer.   Here's a reference going back to 2006.

Now I'm no legal expert, but this outcome seems pretty unlikely.  Clinton sounds like she's just really upset that Constitutional arguments against vouchers have been undermined and wants us to know of the evils of not separating church and state.  Or she's just reminding folks that Obama went to a madrassa as a child (joke!).
