Amoral Hildebeast

This ranks right up there with John Kerry's "I was for the war before I was against it":
Sen. Hillary Clinton, in an about-face, said on Friday she wants the Democratic Party delegates in two states that were barred by the national party to be reinstated and counted in the race to determine the party's U.S. presidential nominee.
Why would she flip? Well of course:
She was the only candidate on the Democratic ballot in Michigan and holds a strong lead in Florida, which holds its contest on Tuesday
because it's in her interest. Not withstanding:
The national party eliminated the delegates from Michigan and Florida because the states broke party rules by holding primary voting contests before February 5.
and then
Because Michigan and Florida violated the rules, all the major Democratic candidates pledged not to campaign there before their primaries.
Not campaigning was not the punishment: Some might argue it was a reward. Not having their votes count because they broke the rules, that was supposed to be the punishment.

Like her amoral husband she will change strips in a second if it helps her to power.
