Yesterday, I criticized Marc Ambinder for a post that I interpreted as being anti-states’ rights, but today he clarifies that he wasn’t arguing against federalism, but Giuliani’s use of federalism to avoid taking stands on controversial issues. For instance, he can still believe that a state should have the right to fly the confederate flag, but that doesn’t remove him from an obligation to say whether or not he finds the flag offensive. That’s fair enough.
