Hey, Barry? Got a tip for you.
If you take a stand on something, even something controversial, don't take it back a day later. The people who did support you will feel betrayed—for good reason!—while the people who were mad at you will stay mad at you. Everybody else will just think that you're spineless, which is the last thing a Dem needs.
Bad policy I can understand, especially by now. Bad politics is just shameful.
