Never let yourself be fooled into thinking that Hillary will be held to a standard in the press.
WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday came out against granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, after weeks of pressure in the presidential race to take a position on a now-failed ID plan from her home state governor.
“I support Governor Spitzer’s decision today to withdraw his proposal,” Clinton said in a statement. “As president, I will not support driver’s licenses for undocumented people and will press for comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of the issues around illegal immigration including border security and fixing our broken system.”
Clinton stumbled when asked about the issue during a Democratic debate two weeks ago, and her new position comes the day before another debate where opponents are expected to raise the issue again.
First she was for it, then she was against it- all within the same debate. Then she was for it, and now she’s “finally taken a position”? I’m glad that after the chief proponent of a program withdraws it that she was finally able to stand tall and go on the record. That’s some real bold leadership right there. America, are you listening? This is your daily Clinton slap in the face.
Rival campaigns made clear they were not letting go of the issue.
Nip at her heels, boys. Nip at her heels. Not too hard, though, or Momma won’t let you sit in the veep seat.
