Internet & Networking "Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other international leaders urged countries and private businesses on Thursday to fight increasing efforts to restrict access to the Internet by repressive governments and even some democratic ones. Opening a two-day conference on digital freedom here sponsored by Google and the Dutch government, Mrs. Clinton warned that restrictions on the Internet threatened not only basic freedoms and human rights, but also international commerce and the free flow of information that increasingly makes it possible." Uhm, Mrs. Clinton... SOPA...?

True... to an extent. The House is also governed by the opposing party.

But the point still sticks. She's advising the governments of other countries on what to do. It wouldn't hurt if she also advocated it to a part of her own government. Of course, the House cares as much for her opinion as they care for a sharp stick in their eyes.
