THE TOUGH QUESTIONS HILLARY FACES AS CANDIDATE
by JEROME R. CORSI
NEW YORK – It’s not like Hillary Clinton hasn’t been in this position before.
She was the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 2008.
But the notions that this is her time, that the field of potential opposition is clear and that she has been thoroughly vetted before could be her undoing, again.
There may be far more hurdles for her to overcome in 2016 than she and her supporters realize.
First, the political culture has changed dramatically since 2008. Back then, both she and Barack Obama officially opposed “same-sex marriage,” an issue that has changed the political landscape at light speed – becoming an intensely polarizing issue that has even challenged previous assumptions about religious freedom.
Today both Obama and Clinton support same-sex marriage, both acknowledging that their views have “evolved” over the years. Obama’s public positions certainly “evolved.” In 1996, as a state Senate candidate in Illinois, he filled out a questionnaire saying he was for it. As a U.S. Senate candidate in 2004, he was against it. In 2008, as a candidate for president, he was not only against it, but told interviewer Rick Warren on national television, “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.” Yet, by 2012, when he sought re-election as president, he was for it, again. Last year he decided it was a constitutional right for same-sex marriages to be recognized in all states.
One of his closest presidential campaign advisers in 2008, David Axelrod, wrote in his book “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics,” that Obama was deceiving the public about his true position from 2004 through 2012.
