Clinton Bashes Obama For Praising Reagan

The usual distortions of what Obama actually said. Maybe someone will point out this endorsement that she features on her website. Money quote:

Her list of favorite presidents - Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Truman, George H.W. Bush and Reagan - demonstrates how she thinks. As expected, Bill Clinton was also included on the aforementioned list.

Then this:

Hillary and I will always remember President Ronald Reagan for the way he personified the indomitable optimism of the American people, and for keeping America at the forefront of the fight for freedom for people everywhere…

Whatever works. I have no idea who is going to prevail in Nevada and South Carolina. But the Clintons are acting as if they think they could lose.
