Inconsistency is the Key
The presumptive democrat nominee just cannot seem to escape her own duality in policy, personality, and principle as of late!
On Tuesday, the Junior Senator from New York made statements to a crowd in Iowa that amounted to mockery of Barack Obama, in citing his life experience and time spent living abroad during his youth, as the source for his interest in international issues and part of his foreign relations "experience".
Hillary commented that, "Voters will have to judge if living in a foreign country at the age of 10 prepares one to face the big, complex international challenges the next president will face".
While this "smack" was clearly far from the darkest depths of historical election-year low-blows, we DO have to remember the source of this volley!
Harkening back to just last Thursday night, Mrs. Clinton took a great deal of audacity... and "license" - pun intended... in accusing her two closest rivals of "mud slinging" during the Vegas Debate. Her "mud slinging" charge was in response to their statements which were clearly issue-oriented and not personal in nature.
Ex-Senator Edwards had just brought up the well-documented issues of Iraq, social security, and drivers licenses where she has been unclear, at best, as to which way she actually believes. In closing out his allotted time, he ended, "She says she will bring change to Washington while she continues to defend a system that does not work, that is broken, that is rigged, that is corrupt."
It was at that time that she leveled the "M-Word" accusation. She asserted, "I've just been personally attacked again! I don't mind taking hits on my record on issues, but when somebody starts throwing mud at least we can hope it's accurate..." Edwards then offered, "There is nothing personal about this!"
Hillary Clinton has been consistently inconsistent during this run for the White House. But, now it seems, not only does she want two sets of stands on any given issue she also wants two sets of rules on any given day!
