The many faces of Carole Strayhorn

I don't actually have much to say about this article regarding Carole Keeton Strayhorn's chameleonlike political career. RG Ratcliffe does a nice job laying out Strayhorn's all-things-to-everyone position on a variety of issues. I'm certainly not one who thinks that once a politician takes a stance on something he or she needs to believe that very thing for the rest of his or her life. It's just that I at least tend to prefer a politician who makes me believe that the change in heart really comes from the heart, and not from the needs of whatever campaign is currently being run.

Anyway. The one thing I do want to highlight is this:

Strayhorn is the only candidate for governor whose Internet site lacks a page dedicated to her position on issues.

I complained about Strayhorn's pathetic campaign website two months ago. I see it's no different now. Maybe they're just waiting for her to settle on what her stances actually are before the campaign commits them to print. Check back again in two more months and we'll see.
