Maryland governor Martin O'Malley knocked Hillary Clinton for following "polls" instead of "principles." Specifically, O'Malley was referring to Clinton's recent flip-flops on same-sex marriage (she now believes the Supreme Court should rule in favor of it) and immigration (she now believes illegal immigrants should be issued driver's licenses).
"I’m glad Secretary Clinton’s come around to the right positions on these issues," O'Malley said, according to a partial transcript of a gaggle the possible presidential candidate held this evening with the press.
"I believe that we are best as a party when we lead with our principles and not according to the polls. And every election is about the future. And leadership is about making the right decision, and the best decision before sometimes it becomes entirely popular."
A reporter followed up by asking whether O'Malley believes Clinton just follows polls. "I’m glad Secretary Clinton has come around to the right positions on both these issues," he said.
"I believe marriage is a human right, not a state right. I’m glad she’s come around to that position as well. I believe that we do our country a disservice when we make it harder for new American immigrants to abide by the rules of the road and obtain drivers licenses. And I’m glad she’s come around to that position now too."
But though Hillary Clinton has changed her positions on a number of issues since jumping into the presidential race this week, she's hold firm on one issue. She'll continue to accept money from lobbyists.
