Hmmm... So "I voted for the war in Iraq before I voted against it" theme is back, but this time with Vietnaaaam. If he becomes president, this could be interesting: "I pushed for abortion restrictions before I increased federal funding for it." "I pressed for more free trade with China, before I argued that there should be sanctions on them". "I called for a tax cut before I signed the tax increase into law..."
Some may call it complexity, bifurcation, or diplomacy, but most American schoolboys would call it being a wuss, and most young women would call it fear of commitment.
