Dana Goldstein reports from Hillary Clinton's Planned Parenthood speech:
My last dispatch from the Planned Parethood presidential forum is up this morning, on Hillary Clinton's speech. All three campaigns were impressive, but Hillary definitely had the strongest take away -- she simply has more experience working on these issues, from her time as an attorney, through her international work as first lady, to her voice as a Senate leader on choice, Plan B, and comprehensive sex-ed.
Interestingly, the male college student who accompanied me to the event pronounced Hillary "soporific." Sigh.
I would be surprised if Hillary Clinton knew less about reproductive rights than any of the other candidates. But I have to ask: Did this male college student consider Hillary's policy speech "soporific" because he's a man and therefore, we must presume, compromised on the issue? Or did this male college student consider Hillary's policy speech "soporific" because it was a policy speech--delivered no less by Hillary Clinton, legendarily soporific public speaker?
