Clinton wets finger again and points it in the air to determine her own policy.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Clinton would no doubt change to a favorable position if elected. That's what her corporate masters would tell her to do.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Hillary would support the strangling of puppies and the banning of chocolate if she thought either would help her election chances.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Ha - she will say ANYTHING to get elected.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Yeah I don't think anyone is actually buying this. She helped get the tpp started, so she doesn't like her own doing? What a fake. Too bad it's not going to work because the Americans who have been aware of the tpp know she's full of it. No matter how many media propaganda pieces she puts out.

"Clinton championed TPP as a “gold standard” agreement when she served as secretary of state during Obama’s first term. But as the front-running Democratic presidential candidate, she has opposed the deal signed in February because of its potential impact on U.S. workers — organized labor being a core constituency of the Democrat Party."

Twisting in the wind...

Well, Democrats, is this really the best you could come up with? Get Bernie before it's too late!

Until Obama was elected, she was abti whatever Obama policy and so Obama gave Secretary of Sate position to calm her down. Now she is back to her anti TPP.. She is already behaving she is elected. She ignores GOP candidates and inviting Sanders supporters to unite Democratic party. Conservative Koch is now supporting her. Other GOP mpney men are awfully quiet.

Presidential candidates should have a written platform upon entering race. It cannot be changed until next election. If he/she gets elected and changes mind or doesn't propose, then he/she should step down and have judicial or legislature call new elections.

God how I wish this was true. Trouble is politicians lack the 'ethical' region of he brain, which most citizens thankfully possess.
