Rudy now opposes civil unions. Is Hillary next?

Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani have had identical positions on LGBT equality for some time now. I always figured it was because Hillary was unwilling to be any less anti-gay than the least anti-gay Republican -- and that has always been Giuliani.

So, now that Rudy has flip-flopped on civil unions, is Hillary next? And if (when) she does, is there any doubt that Solmonese's HRC will continue to support her?

The best thing about the earliest-ever primaries in 2008 is that there will be more than half a year for third parties and independents to make clear that the Democratic and Republican candidates are equally bad on war, taxes, spending, civil liberties, and, yes, LGBT rights.
