Hillary Pulls a Santorum

OK, so we’ve been resisting the easy “Hillary moves right” theory, simply because she hasn’t actually moved right on any issues. (All that press, as far as we could tell, stemmed from her brave stance in favor of “common ground.”) We thought she was engaging in more subtle bits of positioning, while indulging the spin that she was moving right as a helpful bonus.

But we give up. We just got a press release to the effect that she’s cosponsoring legislation with Rick Santorum. And not just any legislation. It’s an Internet-Age Tipper Gore Special, a bill that will finance research into the ill effects of electronic media on children.

The other sponsors are each party’s pillars of moralism, Joe Lieberman and Sam Brownback.
