23. No, he voted FOR the VAWA and AWB. Bill Clinton and the Republicans bundled those

with these "tough on crime" provisions.

You seem to think this was a mistake - that it was more important to vote against these "tough on crime" provisions than to vote for both the Violence Against Women Act and the Assault Weapons Ban. Why are those so unworthy?

Remember, your side are the ones claiming massive political savvy. Therefore, you can't pretend that these provisions were all in one bill. Your savvy means you know voting against the "tough on crime" parts is also voting against VAWA and AWB.

Opposing VAWA and AWB is a rather large change from your previous positions. Why do you oppose them now?
