Can You Say "Pander"? I Bet You Can


Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen has a good article today taking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) to task for co-sponsoring legislation to criminalize burning the U.S. flag. Senator Clinton is apparently eager to throw the First Amendment over the side as she paddles as swiftly as she can to the middle of where she thinks mainstream voters are. Watch for her to sign onto a constitutional amendment to ban flag burning when it turns out that merely criminalizing flag burning doesn't persuade conservatives and moderates to vote for her when she runs for president in 2008.
