Gershom Gorenberg notes the tension between Bill Clinton’s stance on Jerusalem and Hillary Clinton’s embrace of silly agitprop.

Now, of course, I don’t think anyone really believes that she takes a different view of this question. The problem, though, is that while she thinks pandering in this kind of way to hardliner sentiment will help her get elected, it will also make it quite a bit harder to govern if she ever wants to get involved in peace process matters. This kind of rhetoric makes a difference.
