It’s absolutely indicative of his willingness to say anything to win, regardless of whether it’s consistent with positions he’s taken in the past — even as recently as a few minutes ago. And if you can’t tell what he stands for now, how can you know what he’ll stand for if he wins the White House? I smell a potent Democratic attack ad right there.
