Former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters is hoping US presidential candidate Hilary Clinton doesn't win because he thinks she will start a war with Iran.

Waters hopes Clinton's opponent Barack Obama will beat her and run against Republican John McCain, contactmusic.com reported. Though Waters is British, he was upset when Clinton won a primary recently that kept her hopes alive in the race.

Waters said: "I'm a huge fan of Barack Obama. I was so disappointed the other night when the ghastly Hillary got Texas and kept the whole thing going. Please god, let's not have this woman.

"Hillary will want to make her mark and show that she can be just as good as a male president, and she will... invade Iran. Trust me. She voted to declare the Iranian Republican Guard a terrorist organisation. I would buy a whole page in The New York Times and fly Obama's flag."
