Driver's license issue complicates immigration politics
The leading presidential contenders, Republicans and Democrats alike, routinely declare their opposition to illegal immigration.
Is it hard for you libs to deal with the fact that your candidates have pretend to oppose your positions when running for national office?
During Tuesday night's Democratic debate, five of the seven candidates indicated they would support states issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. The front-runner, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, appeared to endorse the idea as well, before retreating into an answer with so many caveats that her rivals mocked her for seeming to take both sides.
On Wednesday, campaign spokesman Phil Singer would not directly answer whether Clinton supported licensing illegal immigrants. "The question misses the point of the issue," he said, stressing that the New York senator wants comprehensive immigration reform that puts people who are in the country illegally on a path to citizenship.

I don't like these politicians actually talking about issues or taking a stance. Let's just go back to hearing about how much money they've raised so the Sheeple can go back to watching Dancing with the Stars.
