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.
