She acknowledged the current uproar over interrogation tactics and allegations of prisoner torture during the Bush years. “I was very vocal in the internal debate,” she said. “I worried about how that would make us look in the eyes of the world. But I had left the White House when a lot of that was taking place.”

Then she paused, worried for the first time in 90 minutes that she’d made a gaffe. Whatever Sen. John McCain says about interrogation techniques, she added quickly, she has similar views.

Oops. Did she forget that McCain called waterboarding a "horrible torture technique used by Pol Pot"?
