If Hillarious Clinton becomes president in 2008, we're in a world of hurt. She is an opportunist, not a leader.
The Des Moines Register has exposed more of Hillarious's shameless behavior; emphasis mine:
Sen. Hillary Clinton, who once opposed requiring motorists to use corn-based ethanol in their cars, proposed Tuesday to dramatically boost use of the alcohol fuel.
Clinton called for $1 billion in grants for research on methods of making ethanol from plant cellulose, the fibrous stuff found in everything from corn stalks to wheat straw, grass and wood. Ethanol is now made almost exclusively from grain.
“We have the capacity to make nearly 4.5 billion gallons of ethanol, but that is a long way from helping us deal with our gas problems,” Clinton said in a speech at the National Press Club.
“We need to be moving on a much faster track.”
Clinton, who is considered a frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, was one of 26 senators who opposed the energy bill passed by Congress last year mandating the use of 7.5 billion gallons of ethanol by 2012.
Clinton opposed both the ethanol mandate and lawsuit protections for ethanol.
