The former secretary of state previously had dodged questions about her position on the pipeline, citing her role in reviewing the project at the State Department and saying the ongoing review needs to run its course.

But during a campaign stop in Des Moines, the Democratic presidential candidate said she thought the matter “would be decided by now.”

“But it hasn’t been decided and I feel now I’ve got a responsibility,” she said. Clinton went on to say the pipeline is a “distraction” from important work to be done on climate change, and “one that interferes with our ability to move forward with all the other issues — therefore I oppose it.  more

  1. I don’t see why her subordinates can’t make her a Helmet that has gauges and dials that run real-time polling numbers and strategery graphs so she doesn’t have this embarrassing time lag between trending data and taking a position.
    They could run a strip of paper out the mouth hole with printed answers to questions and spontaneous monologues sprinkled with freshness and humor.
    This way she can spare her voice, and more importantly, spare the rest of us from hearing it.

  2. Keystone is a distraction and an interference? If anyone, ANYONE with half a functioning brain actually listened to her, they would immediately know she is using big words to sound intellectual but failing miserably.

  3. Questions, questions. Did she announce her opposition to Keystone to play to her leftists base,or is she pimping for Bill’s speaking fees and more Clinton foundation support from the Saudis?.

  4. BNSF Railway makes $2 Billion a year carrying oil from Canada to the US and is owned by Berkshire Hathaway. HRC knows which side of the bread the butter is on. Her blathering bullshit about Globaloney Climax Change notwithstanding.

  5. So, that makes her few EnviroNazi supporters happy. But what about all those Unions and oil companies, their bosses and workers?
