Hillary Calls for Regulating Internet: 'It's a Foot in the Door'
Hillary Clinton took a strong position in support of so-called net neutrality in an appearance yesterday evening in Silicon Valley:

"For the FCC to do what they want to do, to try to create net neutrality as the norm, they have to have a hook to hang it on," Clinton said. She said it's the only hook the FCC's got. But that'd she'd vote for regulating the Internet.

And despite her husband's administration not taking such action, Clinton suggested the Internet had devoloped in such a way that something needed to be changed.

"I would vote for net neutrality, because as I understand it, it’s Title II with a lot of changes within it, in order to avoid the worst of the utility regulation," Hillary Clinton said.

She said President Obama was "right" on the issue.

"It’s a foot in the door, it’s a value statement, I think the president is right to be upfront and out front on that."
