http://www.cbsnews.com/news/clinton...least-surprised-she-lost-says-top-strategist/ Just caught this on Google Now. That part of history is in the past now, but I find it funny how her aides keep bringing a specific vision of her to the public. Err what? Paragraph 1 - She knew it was going to be a very rough battle what with the press and Republicans. Paragraph 2 - She thought she could best be president / be the Democrat in the best position to win. Paragraph 3 - Welp! Actually, she wasn't surprised that she lost. According to Palmieri, the basket of deplorables did real damage. I think that's partially true, but it wasn't to the point of no-return. Her apology read sort of like Trump's ***** grabbing apology. It's apples to oranges because they are widely different situations, but I think it had the same base - a not very meaningful apology followed by criticizing the opponent. If Trump had genuinely apologized for those comments and shown he was a changed man, most of us wouldn't be so hard on him for those comments.
