For Shame: Clinton Edition

It seems Sen. Hillary Clinton (Party of Unprincipled Pandering - NY) is supporting (actually, co-sponsoring) legislation to ban flag-burning.

Given that the SCOTUS ruled in 1989 that a previous flag-burning statute was unconstitutional, it seems like this is just pure grandstanding on her part. But it does show you that Sen. Clinton can be just like President Clinton: why take a stand on principle when selling out might gain a couple points in the polls?

I expect this sort of garbage from (most) elected Republicans. It's a shame when Democrats join the illiberal party. I didn't expect to support Hillary in the primaries, but this pretty much seals it for me.
