Update on Clinton

Yup, the quote was accurate, about 40 minutes into this clip. It's hard to see how she's referencing anyone other than a fellow Democrat. I would encourage you, if you haven't, to watch this speech or read the comments in Hillary's blog. She is very strong and has a lot of diehard support.
I can't quite get my head around the attraction, but it seems that there's something tribal at work. A lot of Democrats just want to be able to touch someone they believe in, and they haven't really believed in anyone since Bill Clinton.
It's amazing. Some of them love her, yet there she is, implying that other Democrats that are running won't protect you from terrorism.
