It's kind of fun to watch the 2008 Presidential hopefuls jockey for position so early.
Hillary hinted at a bid for the President by claiming to plan to vote for Roberts. Here goes her "move to the center."
Now Bill Frist is a Transformer. He has enraged right wingers by backing a repeal of Bush's stem cell research moratorium. Here goes his "move to the center."
Anybody who thinks modern politics, Democrat or Republican, is about ideas or morals is a fool. These people do not stick to their principles. They have no principles. They have provisional opinions that they espouse to get elected. Modern politics is about getting and consolidating power.
