How to Become a Liberal Hero: Go with the flow

Liberals? Employing doubles standards? Get out! Here's Charles Krauthammer on Obama's newfound position on same-sex marriage:
He was pro when running for the Illinois legislature from ultra-liberal Hyde Park. He became anti eight years later when he was running for U.S. senator and had to appeal to a decidedly more conservative statewide constituency. And now he’s pro again.  
When a Republican engages in such finger-to-the-wind political calculation (on abortion, for example), he’s condemned as a flip-flopper. When a liberal goes through a similar gyration, he’s said to have “evolved” into some more highly realized creature, deserving of a halo on the cover of a national news magazine.
Read the rest here.

Since Obama's opponent is Romney, he is pretty much inoculated from criticism for flip-flopping. Glass Houses and all.
