Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked a "yes or no" question today by a New Hampshire voter who wanted to know if she would support the controversial Keystone XL pipeline as president (video below).
Clinton recalled at the town hall-style meeting how she was the secretary of state who "started that process" of the $8 billion pipeline proposal being studied by the Obama administration, notes RollCall.com.
Clinton also stated:
"This is President (Barack) Obama's decision, and I am not going to second guess him because I was in a position to set this in motion and I do not think that would be the right thing to do. So I want to wait and see what he and Secretary (of State John) Kerry decide. If it's undecided when I become president, I will answer your question."
Clinton also refused to say whether she supported the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership, which Obama supports, but progressive Democrats and labor unions oppose, reports The Associated Press.
The Republican National Committee said that Clinton's refusal to give specific answers was "making it abundantly clear she'll say or do anything to get elected."
