OK, the video is getting to that part now
"I have a long enough memory that many people who finished a distant second behind eventual nominees went all the way to the convention" She lists a bunch of early convention years when that happened before and then says she is highly competitive "ahead in popular vote" etc. "People have been trying to push me out of this since Iowa... I don't know why, it is unprecedented..." She talks about how unusual it is to expect other candidates to clear the field this early then says: "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until sometime in June, we all remember that Bobby Kennedy was assasinated in California in June 1968...."

I can possibly give her terminally tone deaf on this one, but if so that is still damning with far less than very faint praise. She wandered into this talking point once before I remember. She really realy should have known by now that it was a stupid reference to make the first time, and an unforgivable one to make twice.
