Clinton playing up Israel bona fides for polls — Goldberg

Appearing on MSNBC earlier Monday, Atlantic reporter Jeffrey Goldberg expounded on his recently published interview with Hillary Clinton, saying that her noticeably pro-Israel stances were probably mostly a result of politicking.

“Hillary doesn’t think that differently [from Obama],” he said, comparing the likely 2016 contender to the current president. “I think she’s running for president and he’s not and she knows that Israel remains, according to polls, a popular cause in America.”

Goldberg added that her pro-Israel statements lacked nuance.
