Hillary! Takes A Stand: "No" on Drivers Licenses for Illegals

Glad she cleared that up.

I'm no campaign expert, but this appears to have been poorly handled, and by "poorly handled" I mean god damn what a fucking train wreck THAT was.

At some point they might want to consider a strategy other than "it's all George Bush's fault". I realize that can and does work, some of the time.

Not this time.

More... [Ace]: Seems like a big enough deal to warrant an excerpt:

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.

Clinton has faced criticism from candidates in both parties for her noncommittal answers on New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's attempt to allow illegal immigrants in his state to receive driver's licenses. Spitzer abandoned the effort Wednesday.

"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."

So, after saying she supported it, then saying no maybe she didn't, she just supported the idea of it but maybe not so much, Spitzer then buckles under a tsunami of public opinion and Hillary! decides, "Oh yeah, that's right, I didn't support it at all. I forgot."

Leadership.

Too bad they can't have dumb college students moderate these debates. Then I bet she'd have all the answers.

But this doesn't save her, or the Democrats. This past summer immigration was a wedge issue for the GOP. Now it's a wedge issue for the Democrats -- their hardline liberal/open borders base wants amnesty and full citizenship for anyone who can sneak across the border, but the vast majority of Americans -- including half the Democratic party -- hate the idea.

This is, for the Democrat, a question with no right answer. Including, as Hillary attempted, answering it both ways and neither way at all.
