Senator Hillary Clinton Co-Sponsors Anti-Flag Burning Law


“I think she is a political animal who believes she has to be a war hawk to keep up with the big boys.”

WASHINGTON (AP) "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is supporting new legislation to criminalize desecration of the United States flag-though she still opposes a constitutional ban on flag attacks.

Clinton, D-N.Y., has agreed to co-sponsor a measure by Republican Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah, which has been written in hopes of surviving any constitutional challenge following a 2003 Supreme Court ruling on the subject."

This is the kind of political opportunism that makes my gorge rise.

I'm afraid that politicians routinely adopt positions they don't really believe in because they cynically believe that there are plenty of voters who are stupid enouth to think that they are taking a sincere stance amd that those voters will support them. Sadly, the results sometimes validate this strategy.

Bush was elected twice, the Republicans control Congress and even the courts. Even after one revelation after another proving that Bush & Co. went to war with a fraudulent case, millions still support Bush.

You can fool some of the people all of the time.
