I have decided that offering an evasive, contradictory answer should no longer be associated with John Kerry. That honor, in this election cycle, should fall to Hillary Rodham.
The New York Senator and former first lady put her “that depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is” training to full use in this week’s Democratic candidate debate, evading a direct answer to several good questions by moderator Tim Russert – who, by the way, does NOT work for Fox News but, in Camp Hillary, is not considered to be chief communications director of that “vast right-wing conspiracy” thing she keeps bringing up.
Example? Sure. On the issue of New York governor Elliot Spitzer suggesting that illegals ought to be issued driver’s licenses.
“What Governor Spitzer is trying to do is fill the vacuum left by the failure of this administration to bring about comprehensive immigration reform.” –Sen. Hillary Rodham-Clinton
Only minutes later:
“I did not say that it should be done, but I certainly recognize why Governor Spitzer is trying to do it.” –Sen. Hillary Rodham-Clinton
Don’t see the problem?
Diagnosis: you’re a liberal. Stop kidding yourself.
