Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,’ chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign John Podesta was confronted by Hillary Clinton’s recent move to the left on same-sex marriage, on immigration, on NAFTA, on the Iraq war, on Cuba policy, and on criminal justice reform, and said no one has been “more consistent” in their “entire career” than Clinton.
Podesta said, “I don’t think there’s anybody who has been more consistent in their entire career from the day she left law school, went to work for the children’s defense fund, from her work in Arkansas, to first lady of the United States. She’s fought for children, for families. She’s made her priorities clear, Her values clear. You know, times change, a decade ago I think a lot of people had a different view on marriage equality. Today the country has shifted. She’s at forefront of saying that that is a right that every American should have. She’s gone further and said we need to protect the LGBT community in the workplace. So I think circumstances change. This isn’t 1992. it’s not 2008. it’s 2015.”
