Hillary pushes for felon voting.

James Taranto at Best of the Web observes:

This seems a rather pointless exercise. Surely the Republican Congress is not going to support legislation aimed at winning more votes for Democrats, which would be the effect of these proposals. Declaring a federal holiday would simply mean federal employees, who tend to lean toward the Dems, would be more likely to go to the polls, and felons are generally thought to be far more Democratic than the general public. ('Ex-felons' is a misnomer; presumably the AP means felons who've served their sentences.)"
