Mrs. Clinton's platitudes

The murder rate within the black male population of Baltimore is about 156 per 100,000. Young black men being killed by other young black men. The national rate is 5 per 100,000. So what is Mrs. Clinton's solution?
"There needs to be a concerted effort to address the systemic racism in our criminal justice system. And that requires a very clear agenda for retraining police officers, looking at ways to end racial profiling, finding more ways to really bring the disparities that stalk our country into high relief."
Why do thinking people vote for someone who babbles these platitudes that no one believes, not even her?

I don't trust any politician, but... she has always struck me as particularly unprincipled. She simply says *whatever*. Whatever she believes at the time is the most popular thing to say that will get her votes/money. Romney was like that too, except he screwed up. Possibly she will screw up as well. We shall see.
