Hillary Clinton backpedals, er- "clarifies"

The Caucus (New York Times Blog)

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton just released this statement on whether homosexuality is immoral, after being pressed by gay rights organizations to clarify her initial remarks.

“I have heard from many of my friends in the gay community that my response yesterday to a question about homosexuality being immoral sounded evasive. My intention was to focus the conversation on the failed don’t ask, don’t tell policy. I should have echoed my colleague Senator John Warner’s statement forcefully stating that homosexuality is not immoral because that is what I believe.”

Here are some Comments (Remember, this is a New York Times Blog:

HRC — you are twenty four hours too, too late. Naturally you now want to nuance again, but its too late. Everyone knows where you stood yesterday and now, after you see how you have inflicted a terminal knife into your candidacy, you now want to nuance and triangulate. But it’s too late. We see who you are and what you are at bottom. It’s too late to save your candidacy. Not even are you suitable for a vice-presidential slot.

It ly took Republican John Warner less time to rebuke the General.
