    I have a love/hate (well, love/disappointment) thing with Hillary.  One of the reasons I stopped being a lurker on Kos, signed up, and started participating, is that I am very disappointed in many elected Dems precisely because they, in my view, do not have principles.  People on Kos are the friends people like Hillary need -- someone to tell them when they go wrong.  Admittedly, people go overboard.  

    But Hillary is the main one I am upset with for that reason. IMHO, she is the reigning queen of triangulation (her husband virtually perfected it).  I used to cheer the Clintons, but their short-term tactics and victories have undermined us in the long term.

    So, I have to disagree with your view that she is principled.  I want her to be, but I don't feel she is.
