Will the anti-war left keep HRC honest?

Don Surber reports on democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton's record.
Senator Hillary, on the Senate Floor, 10/10/2002:

“I believe the authority to use force to enforce that mandate is inherent in the original 1991 UN resolution, as President Clinton recognized when he launched Operation Desert Fox in 1998.

“If we get the resolution that President Bush seeks, and if Saddam complies, disarmament can proceed and the threat can be eliminated. Regime change will, of course, take longer but we must still work for it, nurturing all reasonable forces of opposition.

“If we get the resolution and Saddam does not comply, then we can attack him with far more support and legitimacy than we would have otherwise.”

This is a crystal clear statement that she supported an attack by US forces against Iraq.
Will the anti-war left let her try to spin her way out of her clearly stated stance or will they fold in the name of partisan politics?
