CNN's Jake Tapper said on Sunday that he almost had an "aneurysm" trying to get an answer from Hillary Clinton's spokeswoman about where the presidential candidate stands on the trade bill that was hashed out in the House of Representatives last week.

"I had Karen Finney, her spokeswoman, on the show yesterday, and I thought I was going to have an aneurysm trying to get a an answer from her on what Hillary Clinton's position is on this bill," he said.

CNN's Dana Bash told the "State of the Union" host that the campaign likely believes that the issue will only hurt Clinton politically if she definitively weighs in at the moment.

"It's about getting the base excited about her when she needs them," she said.

But Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward said that Clinton surely has solid views on the trade legislation and that she should share them with the American public.

"If she were president, she’d do it one way or the other," he said. "Tell us now!"

As Mediaite reported, Clinton's views on Obama's Trans Pacific Partnership have remained vague at best.
