Carroll notes the convenient switch of opinion by U.S. Representative Mark Udall.
Udall has long been against easing off-shore drilling regulations in the United States.
Now that he is running for Senate, and the political winds have shifted, so has Udall.
Carroll points out that Udall "recognizes an albatross when he sees one clinging to his neck. So he tried to yank it off by reversing his position."
Some people follow their principles. Others, like Udall, follow the polls.
Of course, those with principles are rarely politicians. Udall is a fine politician.
