Hypocrisy is the scarlet letter in politics.
It's rare when a president wins the campaign without winning independents.

She's got a large family. She's a great mom. And she's a hard worker. I think she's going to be a very effective campaigner.
Drone attacks subvert the rule of law - we become judge, jury, and executioner - at the push of a button.
