Flip Flops and Hillary Clinton

I'm not sure I really like that joke - the Republicans pick on Hillary enough for everyone (and I have no idea why). Not to mention our illustrious President has done quite a bit of flip-flopping himself as of late.

One thing the Democrats really need to do is start being proactive and aggressive against those that are blaming us for their mistakes.

I want whoever is going to win to be our nominee. I'm not convinced that will be Hillary, but I wouldn't bash her because she's doing everything many other politicians do.

I wouldn't either (the bashing part). I got very irritated last election when Kerry was painted a 'flip-flopper' and Bush himself said he stuck to what he thought was right (issues/opinions most of us think are really wrong and he stuck by his word no matter what).

Of course the 'flip-flop' bashing got me yelling at the tv saying things like, "When you find out new informaiton, especially something that proves your previous belief/opinion wrong, it's actually okay to change your mind!"

I'm not completely okay with this cartoon either and would disagree with it entirely if it weren't for the fact Hillary changes her mind to meet whatever the polls say and doesn't seem to know what her own personal convictions are except to win. win. win. That's what I'm taking this cartoon as.

why is it we can't have any respect for someone that is bright enough to say "I've changed my mind" in the face of changed information.

We've had 6 years of the kind of mindless stubborn "don't bother me with the facts my mind is made up" mentality with Bush....

I'm all for having someone that will listen, learn and CHANGE if that is dictated by the changing world we live in
