Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi was widely derided for saying Congress had to pass Obamacare "so that you can find out what is in it."
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at a town hall today in New Hampshire used the same logic when asked about the Keystone XL pipeline, which would deliver oil from Canada to refineries in the United States.
A New Hampshire voter asked: "As president, would you sign a bill, yes or no please, in favor of allowing they Keystone XL pipeline?"
Well (four second pause), as you know, I was the Secretary of State who started that process. I was the one who put into place the investigation, I have now passed it off, as obvious, cause I'm no longer there, to Secretary Kerry. This is President Obama's decision, and I am not going to second guess him, because I was in a position to set this in moition and I do not think that would be the right thing to do. So, I want to wait and see what he and Secretary Kerry decide... if it's undecided when I become president, I will answer your question.
It's a bizarre response from a candidate who should know more about Keystone XL than any other candidate running for office, as she was secretary of state during the time the Canadian company was applying for approval from the agency she ran.
Clinton just released her "climate plan" but did not make mention of Keystone.
