173. Brief history lesson for you
When JFK admitted that he screwed up and apologized to the American people in response to the Bay of Pigs disaster, his support went UP. Amazing innit? The American people actually LIKE their politicians to admit they are HUMAN and make MISTAKES and try to CORRECT them. It's the whole infallibility dodging and maneuvering in politics that people don't like. That she refuses to admit her mistake puts her in a similar class as Bush, who still says his biggest mistake was trading away Sammy Sosa.
