While We're Slamming Hillary....She is a Leader?!?

The quotation below is the first portion of an article you can read here. Although there are plenty of reasons to question the idea of a President Hillary Clinton, her evasiveness and inability to take strong positions (consistently!) are high on that list.

The bold-highlighted part of the quotation is merely the epitome of this. She should be ashamed.

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign slogan is "Ready for Change, Ready to Lead" yet she has adopted the time-honored, front-runner strategy of dodging tough questions, contradicting the image of a strong leader.

The former first lady and New York senator refused to take a position on a range of substantive issues during Wednesday night's debate, from Social Security reform to U.S. troop deployments in Iraq to whether Israel, if threatened, has the right to attack Iran.

She even ducked the question of which team she'd root for if her hometown Chicago Cubs met the New York Yankees in next month's World Series. "Well, I would probably have to alternate sides," she said.
