I don't think Eppy meant it as derogatory of TH-K. I think she may have married Senator Kerry because she thought he was handsome and dashing and appealed to her on those grounds.

Senator Kerry's flip flops, OTOH, are insulting and really don't serve any purpose except to show how indecisive he really is and insecure. THAT is scary. And during the campaign they had to take away his cell phone several times because when a decision was reached, he was calling everyone
and his dog to see if it was a smart move.

Political savvy is something that you learn and in his 20 years in the Senate he has been absent more than present, he has changed his position so often he earned the 'flip flop' moniker. While I intensely dislike Hillary Clinton's politics, here is where she has stood her ground and earned the respect of the Democratic Party: She believes in abortion, a woman's right to choose, if you will and that will be her moderate stand.

She has also kept faith with some of the Bush administration's more alarming policies like 'no child left behind,' and other things.

She has stayed the distance with her stands. Of course she has alienated the Right (duh and no surprise there), but she has stood for SOMETHING. Senator Kerry doesn't even have that to his credit except that when he has voted, he has always voted for the most liberal policies and practices.
