Not panicking yet, but...

The House approved the flag desecration amendment with eight votes to spare. Its fate in the Senate is less clear, but it looks like it's going to be a squeaker either way.

I guess one senator we can count on to oppose this amendment is Hillary Clinton. Did you read her statement on the matter? It was a miasma of classic, Clintonian triangulation. Initially, she insisted she was still undecided on the matter, but finally said that, while she supported federal anti-flag-burning legislation, she opposed writing it into the Constitution.

Oh well, why not? She and her husband have had a lot of success with that formula over the years, and that's one more formula for success than most Democrats have these days. Well, however tortured her logic, I'm glad she's taken the side she has.
