And Hillary never said that, after all...
This is fun. Tempest in a teapot, and other lame metaphors.
Hillary's site has quickly responded, with this update, from David Cutler, the co-owner of Salmon Press Newspapers:
The question posed was originally what portraits would you hang in the White House if you were President and as the dialogue progressed, who are the presidents you admire most?
She [Sen. Clinton] listed several presidents that she admired and mentioned she liked Reagan’s communication skills. She did not say Reagan was her favorite President. She didn’t say anything close to that.
Good. And good for Cutler for being honest. And it would still do everyone good to track down Hertsgaard's book and read it.
