Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Hillary Clinton on Private Email: ‘That Was a Mistake. I’m Sorry’ (Now Go Away)

Well, if you don’t like what Hillary says about her email one day, stick around. If the polls suggest it, she’ll say something different soon enough.

It was only, what two or three days ago, that Clinton in an interview with NBC News said her use of the private email system wasn’t the “best choice” and acknowledged she didn’t “stop and think” about her email setup when she took over at the State Department.

She did not apologize then for her decision when asked directly, “Are you sorry?” Instead, she again said she wishes she had “made a different choice.”

Well, that was then, this is now. After her non-apology polled badly, Hillary commanded herself to have a change of heart.

And so, presto chang-o, Hillary Clinton on Tuesday told ABC News’ David Muir that using a personal email account while Secretary of State was a “mistake” and that she is “sorry” for it.

“I do think I could have and should have done a better job answering questions earlier. I really didn’t perhaps appreciate the need to do that,” she said. “What I had done was allowed, it was above board. But in retrospect, as I look back at it now, even though it was allowed, I should have used two accounts. One for personal, one for work-related emails. That was a mistake. I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility.”

When asked by Muir to clarify if she did feel she made a mistake by using her private account, Clinton conceded she did.

“I did, I did,” Clinton said. “As I said, it was allowed and there was no hiding it. It was totally above board. Everybody in the government I communicated, and that was a lot of people, knew I was using a personal email. But I’m sorry that it has, you know, raised all of these questions. I do take responsibility for having made what is clearly not the best decision.”

So there, after a cascading series of explanations, excuses and lawyerly statements, now she’s sorry. So, can we just get on an declare her president and not have to drag this thing on into November 2016?

Maybe not. A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll found that 53 percent of Americans now see Clinton unfavorably, up 8 points since midsummer.
