Two people whose names get tossed around a lot for the 2016 presidential races were asked about the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling. Here's courageous New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trying to avoid being put on the record about it:
[Christie] answered a question as to whether the Supreme Court had correctly ruled in the so-called Hobby Lobby case yesterday by saying, “Who knows?”... “Why should I give an opinion on whether they’re right or wrong? At the end of the day they did what they did. That’s now the law of the land unless people in the elected branches try to change it. This is the way you get bogged down in those things.”
Spoken like a true leader! Hillary Clinton, in the meantime, was a lot more direct:
I disagree with the reasoning as well as the conclusion … It's troubling a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception is not going to get that service through their employer health care plan because the employer doesn’t think she should use contraception.
That quote comes from a US News & World Report story that also says Clinton did not do as good a job talking about income inequality. As I noted in my review of Hard Choices, Clinton is also incredibly vague and cliche-ridden when discussing income inequality in her book. It's frustrating that she can give such a perfect answer on one issue and then turn completely tone-deaf when asked about another issue. It's hard to believe Clinton cares about income inequality when she delivers such rote responses time after time.
