Just pathetic

A presidential candidate lumbers away from a mess of her own making. AP:

I support Governor Spitzer’s decision today to withdraw his proposal,” Clinton said in a statement. “As president, I will not support driver’s licenses for undocumented people and will press for comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of the issues around illegal immigration including border security and fixing our broken system.

Best line to capitalize on Clinton’s mess, via WaPo:

When it takes two weeks and six different positions to answer one question on immigration, it’s easier to understand why the Clinton campaign would rather plant their questions than answer them,” said Barack Obama spokesman Bill Burton...

Unfortunately for Mr. Obama, if he continues to rely on proxies to deliver lines like these, it is unlikely he is going to prevail versus his opponents. On the other hand, he may well be really running for VP anyway. Additional point: Was Mrs. Clinton withdrawing her support for Spitzer’s first scheme or his second scheme? On further reflection, who cares?
