Ms. Hillary retreats

David Axelrod fired back at Ms. Hillary on Twitter today — fired back in response to her interview with the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg — operating as always on behalf of his lord and master. (Paul wrote about the interview here.)

Axelrod’s modest whipping got results. Ms. Hillary promptly retreated from her unmistakable critique of Obama’s fatuous nondoctrine. The Washington Post (among others) reports:

Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton called President Obama earlier Tuesday to tell him that him that her recent comments about foreign policy were not meant as a slight against him, a Clinton spokesman said.

“Earlier today, the Secretary called President Obama to make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him, his policies, or his leadership,” said Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill in a statement. “Secretary Clinton has at every step of the way touted the significant achievements of his Presidency, which she is honored to have been part of as his Secretary of State.”

In short, it’s all a big misunderstanding; Ms. Hillary was talking about someone or something else. She’s waddling that critique back.
