Flip-Flop Season Has Begun

The 2008 race now has officially begun. Conservatives once again are accusing the expected Democratic opponent of flip-flopping. From Human Events:

Hillary’s contradictions on the war are too numerous and complicated to summarize in single slogan about footwear, as Republicans did against John Kerry in 2004. Her flip-flop collection rivals anything from Imelda Marco’s closet.

Yes, it wouldn’t be an election campaign if Republicans weren’t claiming that the Democrats are flip-flopping. This time, as compared to John Kerry who had a consistent position on the war from the start, requiring opponents to distort his views to claim flip-flopping, there is an element of truth here. Still, I’d rather have Hillary’s recent conversion to opposition to the war than the position of Republicans who have been wrong every step of the way.
