Sen. Clinton says “You’ll have to ask someone else.”
Why is that? Does she think a candidate for president should not have opinions on matters of public policy?
“Those weren’t gifts. Whatever I’ve done, I complied with Senate rules at the time. That’s the way every senator operates,” Clinton said. The senator deflected a question about whether she believed the rule, which has since been changed, was good policy.
“Those were the rules. You’ll have to ask somebody else whether that’s good policy,” she said.
That’s a misleading headline, btw. It’s not so much that she accepted private jet flights, as it is who it was who was providing those favors. I see that some newspapers obscured the issue even further, though, by headlining it: “Clinton defends jet travel.” Not a one of them headlined it, “Clinton defends relationship with Vinod Gupta.”
