Did Trump Already Have A "Read My Lips" Moment?

One of President-elect Trump's campaign promises was to prosecute Hillary Clinton ... I remember the "crooked Hillary" rhetoric.
President-elect Donald Trump won’t subject Hillary Clinton to a criminal inquiry — instead, he’ll help her heal, his spokeswoman said Tuesday.

“I think when the president-elect who’s also the head of your party … tells you before he’s even inaugurated he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and content, to the members,” Kellyanne Conway told the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” who first reported that the president-elect would not pursue his campaign pledge to “lock up” Clinton, his Democratic opponent.
And just a few weeks ago he was all:
“If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception.”
Maybe he's just channeling his inner Bush41. It is starting to sound like he is softening his positions on global warming and Obamacare also.

If so, what other surprises does he have in store for his supporters? He may want to be careful here.

If she is dying, I mean literally... or truly brain damaged from falls or such... backing off would be very wise. Although, I still think the first lesson a politician learns is not to attack other politicians. Perhaps he, as you seem to suggest in the title, just became a politician. I don't know, I am just guessing blind. Could be either way... or some other things.
