Catastrophic?

CATASTROPHIC?….Kate Sheppard defends Hillary Clinton’s tap dance on the issue of Elliot Spitzer’s program to provide driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants:

While others have criticized it, I think she gave a decent response to what was posed as a “gotcha” question. It would be hard — catastrophic even — for Clinton to come right out and say that she wants all illegal immigrants to have drivers’ licenses.

I don’t understand this. Obama straightforwardly said he supported Spitzer’s program. Does this mean his candidacy is doomed?
