Hillary Clinton showed her true colors today at the DNC Winter Meeting, when she announced that she is in favor of “taking�? profits from oil companies in order to develop a strategic energy fund. Although the junior Senator from New York is known for promoting socialist ideals, today’s speech sounded reminiscent of those made in recent weeks by Hugo Chavez instead of an American elected official.

I’m sure the Clinton “people�? are already working on statements to cover her tracks as this story gains momentum, but she was reading right from a prepared script, so there is little doubt in my mind that she misspoke.

Brian Beutler over at The Raw Story has the full transcript of Clinton’s speech posted there for your viewing pleasure.
