    Just over a year ago, Sen. Clinton was "adamantly" against illegal immigrants:

    In an interview last month on Fox News, Mrs. Clinton said she
    does not "think that we have protected our borders or our ports or
    provided our first responders with the resources they need, so we
    can do more and we can do better."
    In an interview on WABC radio, she said: "I am, you know,
    adamantly against illegal immigrants."
    Unlike many pro-business Republicans, Mrs. Clinton also has
    castigated Americans for hiring illegal aliens.
    "People have to stop employing illegal immigrants," she said. "I
    mean, come up to Westchester, go to Suffolk and Nassau counties,
    stand on the street corners in Brooklyn or the Bronx. You're going
    to see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work
    and construction work and domestic work."

    ANd now:

    WASHINGTON --Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a potential White House
    candidate in 2008, said Wednesday some Republicans are trying to create a
    "police state" to round up illegal immigrants.

    Clinton criticized a bill the
    House passed in December that would impose harsher penalties for
    undocumented workers.
    "Don't turn your backs on what made this country great," she said, calling
    the measure "a rebuke to what America stands for."
    The House measure would make unlawful presence in the United States,
    is currently a civil offense, a felony.
    Clinton said it would be "an unworkable scheme to try to deport 11 million
    people, which you have to have a police state to try to do."

    The senator also sent a four-page public letter to constituents outlining
    her views on immigration. In the letter, she shied away from specifics but
    said she does support allowing at least some of the estimated 11 million
    undocumented workers to earn citizenship.

    Nice to know she takes a stand, and sticks to her beliefs!!!:lol:

    Just to be fair- it's not only Sen. Clinton who has flip-flopped on this issue. You can add Reid, Boxer, Pelosi.... seems like the Democratic leaders are all changing their minds!

    Two faces, and neither one of them is pretty. :nono:

    IMO, Hillary Clinton is a lying, conniving, scheming con artist whose only interests are her own.
    What I still haven't figured out is how she managed to pull the wool over so many New Yorkers. :confused:

    New Hampshire
    Quite frankly, she had no competition in New York. The only *real* competition she *could* have had pulled out of the race and a third-rate nobody ended up running.

    Since her election, she's been playing politics pretty shrewdly to first, I would imagine, shore up her poll numbers for re-election so that she can, second, eventually make a run at the Oval Office.
