#TBT: In 2007, Clinton Called The Cost Of Campaigns “Not Good For The Country”

Adding to the already long, proud history of flip flops from her three week-old campaign, Hillary Clinton announced yesterday that she would begin soliciting donations directly for Priorities USA Action—a liberal super PAC backing her candidacy.

The New York Times notes this is “the first time a Democratic presidential candidate has fully embraced the independent groups that can accept unlimited checks from big donors…”

The hypocrisy is palpable, as Clinton has decried “unaccountable money” and even called for a Constitutional amendment banning the very money she’s now personally soliciting.

In 2007, during an interview on ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Clinton described money in politics as “out of control. It’s not good for the country, and it’s not good for the system.”

Apparently this is one of those cases Bill Clinton referred to when he said, “There’s one set of rules for us and another set for everybody else.”
