• MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Tore Into Hillary Clinton For Dodging on the Keystone Pipeline

    Before boarding a private jet, Hillary Clinton repeatedly dodged questions about whether or not she supports the Keystone oil pipeline.

    “As president, would you sign a bill—yes or no, please—in favor of allowing the Keystone XL pipeline,” an man asked Clinton at a campaign event on Tuesday.

    In classic Clinton form, Hillary gave a non answer on the controversial pipeline that connects from Canada to Texas. “This is President Obama’s decision,” Hillary said. “If it’s undecided when I become president, I will answer your question.”

    That had longtime liberal ally Ed Schultz steaming mad.

    “That is such a dodge,” the MSNBC host said Wednesday. “She’s also one of the most powerful political figures in this country and people deserve an answer, not just a grandmother.”

    Clinton copped out on the Transpacific Partnership also, blaming her inability to answer on not wanting to leak sensitive or classified information.

    “And you know I don’t want to make too much of this because I’m very clear and have been consistently that I do not think it appropriate for me to comment on something that I had official responsibilities for until it is completed,” Clinton said.

    This from the woman who emailed about yoga from the same email account that she conducted official State Department business on?

    “I think it is a political dodge,” Schultz said. “There is no law anywhere that says that the person running for president can’t comment on any issue under the sun. If Hillary Clinton wants to be the next president of the United States, she needs to step out and she needs to come clean and needs to answer on these two very important issues.”
