Missing in the Discussion about Gas Tax Cut Proposals

Of course Clinton's support of a temporary gas tax cut is a pander that will just enrich oil companies, and that's bad enough.

But what's really bad about it is that she's copycatting off of John McCain and she's taking his lead on his proposal.

If McCain never had this proposal, then there's absolutely no chance that Clinton would have suggested this.

That's what worst about what Clinton's doing: she's engaging in Republican-lite me-too-ism, and it suggests she's embracing the idea that Republicans are right and need to be copied in order to be successful.
