66. Actually, I think there were many sickened by HRC's "inappropriate" comment

I think it hurt her with Democrats who took it as stabbing Kerry in the back. There were many things she could have said , but only if she believed Kerry deliberately demeaned vets and soldiers, would "inappropriate" be the right word. You don't say inappropriate for leaving out one two letter pronoun accidentally - when it was in the text given out before the speech and which he had already explained.

In fact, her comment may have come back to haunt her. Is it possible that her treatment of Kerry led to the Kerry and Kennedy endorsements of Obama? Even if it didn't, I suspect that had Kerry stayed in, he and Obama would have split the NOT Clinton vote and HRC would have won the nomination.

Speaking of precise use of words- and seeing that you mentioned Hillary, I think there is a bigger problem with anyone - especially one of Clinton's generation - that did not see that giving the Russian leader something with a big red button as a way to reset the relationship - is a bigger problem.
