Trade deal, Keystone open Clinton to flip-flop charges

Oct 8, 2015 3:48 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Clinton's new opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership is the latest in a long line of issues on which Clinton has recently shifted her views.

And it gives her opponents a chance to call her a flip-flopper in the first Democratic presidential debate next week.

Clinton has announced her opposition recently to the Keystone XL pipeline, a project she supported back in 2010 as President Barack Obama's secretary of state. She also backs gay marriage but opposed it for more than two decades in public life.

Clinton's repositioning is aimed at a Democratic primary electorate eager to find a new standard-bearer. But her reversals could trail her into the general election.
