Hillary Clinton Defers Position on Trade Partnership Legislation

During her first official press conference of her campaign – Hillary Clinton deferred once again to take an explicit position on Barack Obama’s historic trade deal with Asia.
The Democrat front-runner addressed reporters on a rainy Monday afternoon.
The conference followed a rally with supporters at a barn tucked away in an orchard in New Hampshire.
Despite being asked point-blank if she supports the fast-track authority to negotiate the landmark 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership, Clinton declined to weigh in on what she called “a process issue.”
The question, Clinton said, was not whether she was for or against the deal, but whether “its broad outlines can be improved."
