Hillary, progressive, or is it centrist, was proud of her conservatism and conservative roots

http://usuncut.com/politics/npr-interview-hillary-clinton-was-proud-of-her-conservatism/

SCOTT SIMON: I mean, did you ever back in the í60s, between when ó I believe you were a Goldwater girl ó
HILLARY CLINTON: Thatís right.
SCOTT SIMON: ó and whenever you became politically Ė
HILLARY CLINTON: Thatís right. And I feel like my political beliefs are rooted in the conservatism that I was raised with. I donít recognize this new brand of Republicanism that is afoot now, which I consider to be very reactionary, not conservative in many respects. I am very proud that I was a Goldwater girl.


Look, everyone can have changes as time goes on, I get it, but it just isn't obvious that much has changed with her.

4. In 1996, the DLC thought they'd struck gold, parroting the Democratic essentials, but
