Hillary Clinton tries to explain how she changed her position on same-sex marriage

Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday (27 September) and was faced with a video montage of her changing positions on issues – including same-sex marriage.

Host Chuck Todd asked the current front-runner for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination to respond the critics who say her positions have changed out of political expediency and changed with public sentiment.

Replied Clinton: ‘Well, I just don’t think that reflects either my assessment of issues, and I don’t think it reflects how people who are thoughtful actually conduct their lives. I mean, if we don’t learn, if we don’t, you know, make decisions based on the best information we have available, well, you know, that’s regrettable.

‘On same-sex marriage, like a lot of people, including our president, I did evolve,’ she added. ‘And I was not raised to even imagine this. And I’m thrilled now that it is the law of the land. And I have a lot of close friends who are now able to be married because of the changes we’ve made legally and constitutionally.’
