Aww. Or, gross.

In the interview, Clinton dismissed the Obama administration’s self-described foreign policy principle of “Don’t do stupid stuff.”And while she also praised Obama several times, Clinton nonetheless called his decision not to assist Syrian rebels early on a “failure.”

The statement from Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill stressed that although the two have had “honest differences on some issues” including “the wicked challenge” of Syria, she has discussed these differences publicly before, including in her new memoir, “Hard Choices.”

“Some are now choosing to hype those differences but they do not eclipse their broad agreement on most issues,” Merrill said. “Like any two friends who have to deal with the public eye, she looks forward to hugging it out when she they see each other tomorrow night.”

Here are our options.

1. Hillary meant what she said when she criticized Obama’s “Don’t do stupid stuff” principle.

2. Hillary did not mean what she said.

If 1 is true, then her walking it back today is the result of:

A) cowardice

b) loyalty to something other than the truth

c) having to walk back something that she had no idea would blow up the way it has

If option a is the case, Hillary Clinton is unfit for the presidency.

If option b is the case, Hillary Clinton is unfit for the presidency.

If option c is the case, Hillary Clinton is, at the very least, still not ready for the presidency.

If option 2 above is the case, Hillary Clinton is unfit for the presidency.

None of that means that she won’t actually win the presidency. Barack Obama was and is unfit for the presidency. Yet he has the presidency.

None of this changes anything. Hillary is already amoral, stupid, a liar and corrupt, which makes her unfit to be president.

It is funny, however, watching the Clintons implode.

Hillary panicked, and basically blurted out her game plan for running in 2016 too far in advance of the election.

She sees Obama's plunging poll numbers like everyone else does, and wants to avoid being tied to him and having to run as his third term in 2016 -- Hillary wants the spin for '16 to be she's running as Bill's third term, if Obama's numbers keep heading in the same direction. But coming out 80 days before the midterm election means that those to the left of her in the Democratic Party still can comfort themselves with the idea that there aren't going to be any big losses on Nov. 4 due to Obama's failed policies.

She attacked him based on the looming and likely -- but still hypothetical -- midterm losses, which allows the left side of the party even more justification right now for pushing a 'Draft Fauxahontas' movement, based on disloyalty to the president. Making kissy-faces with Obama now is a way of trying to mitigate that damage, even though both sides are fully aware of how they view and what they think of each other.

There has been so much bungling with ME foreign policy for many, many years. I wonder if it really matters which side you're on (with the notable exception of support for Israel which should be a priority) when dealing with those nasty bedouins who are nothing but troublemakers, to say the very least.

As for Hillary, she is devoid of principles or scruples.

Hillary has brain rot, probably from falling down drunk and hitting her head so many times.

Hillary Clinton now says she was a strong advocate of arming the Syrian rebels when she was secretary of state, but in a February 2012 interview, she passionately pushed back against the viability of such an opposition — even raising the specter that such a policy might be akin to supporting al-Qaida.

If Hillary gets the marxist nomination, she will be the least qualified person to ever gain the nomination of a major party.

This beautiful terseness from Hamlet sums it up......

"Must I remember? Why, she would hang on him
As if increase of appetite had grown
By what it fed on, and yet, within a month—
Let me not think on ’t. Frailty, thy name is woman!—"

“Like any two friends who have to deal with the public eye, she looks forward to hugging it out when she [remove] they see each other tomorrow night.”

Obama might go along with the fake hugs and kisses, but Hillary better not get too close to Michelle or she will likely get another head concussion.

Hillary has fallen down drunk and hit her head too many times. She has becoming Doctor Jeckle and Mr. Hyde.

And I am so sure Obama will believe her, that it was all just a big misunderstanding caused by the rightwing press twisting her kind and admiring words about him.
