Hillary Admits Error

Error, in this case, being Democrats' opposition to deficit spending (when it's the result of GOP tax cuts) because it's "fiscally irresponsible." Now that she's running (scared) for president, Hillary has changed her tune:
"Stimulus shouldn't be paid for," declared Mrs. Clinton on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "The stimulus, by the very nature of the economic problems we're facing, is going to require an injection of federal funding."
You will notice, however, that she's calling for more spending (for the children, I presume), not further tax cuts. How cynical can you get?
