Here's the big quote from a recent Boston Globe interview with Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), still the frontrunner to be the next president of the U.S. of A.:
"I have a million ideas. The country can't afford them all."
Here's the fuller context:
Clinton recently floated the idea of issuing a $5,000 bond to each baby born in the United States to help pay for college and a first home, but it immediately inspired Republican ridicule and she quickly said she would not implement the proposal.
She defended that decision yesterday, saying she is focusing on proposals with more political support and she is not formally proposing anything she can't fund without increasing the deficit: "I have a million ideas. The country can't afford them all."
Elsewhere in the Q&A, she called for restoring "checks and balances" to the executive branch, called Bush's Russia policy "incoherent," and dissed Dick Cheney as a power-hungry hungry hippo (not exactly in those words).
The whole thing is here.
Earlier this year, reason looked at Hillary's foreign policy and blanched.
