Tom Brokaw on television is pedantically correcting Hillary Clinton's claim in her El Paso speech that she came here "35 years ago, to work for the Democratic National Committee, registering voters." 1972, as Brokaw points out, was more like 36 years ago. But that's silly. Somewhat more substantively, what she came to Texas to do was work for George McGovern. If she wants credit for her experience and years of work she should probably say what she actually did.
