The following was excerpted from Hillary's interview with Katie Couric on the Today show the other day. It just reinforces her anti-gun views. Couric: "But were you surprised at the backlash - the really vitriolic, violent backlash against you in many ways. Do you think it was good,old-fashioned sexism?" Clinton: "Katie, I think it was many different things. I think there were legitimate questions that I fully understand and accept about whether or not I should have had a position as the head of a task force on health care. And in retrospect, it shouldn't have happened. It was a mistake. Whether I could have, in some other way, contributed as I continued to do during the rest of the administration, I think we worked out. I began to figure out how to do that. But it was I'm sure for some people, you know, women of my generation, me personally- but it was also the values and the issues. You know, there are people who disagree with my fundamental belief that, in our nation, we've got to figure out a way to provide quality, affordable health care for everybody. That's not the way they see the world. There are people who didn't agree with the economic plan, who didn't agree with the kind of challenges on taking assault weapons off the street. So, it was many different things. It was personal, which I accept. It was symbolic, which I understand. And it was very much related to the issues and the values that my husband's administration represented." Couric: "So, philosophical, as well?" Clinton: "And ideological, and political."
