Clinton's gas tax stance does matter

Paul Krugman is wrong in thinking that the gas tax pandering doesn't matter. Apparently Clinton will introduce a bill aimed to create a gas tax holiday. This is bad policy and bad politics, but to introduce a bill seems to be a punch drunk thing to do. More importantly, regardless of the political intent of the bill and it's chances of passing, putting forth legislation like this suggests a disdain for the process of governing. Worse, it suggests that horse trading for terrible legislation is likely to be standard operating procedure for a Clinton administration. This is not an example of good governance.
