Errr, Debbie, you guys dumped boatloads of cash into this race vastly outspending the GOP and you still lost (they even brought in Bill Clinton).

Walkback: Hillary Clinton on Wednesday pulled back from comparing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine to those of Hitler. She said comments made the night before at a private event were meant only to bring “a little historical perspective” to Russia’s claim that it entered the Crimean peninsula in Ukraine in order to protect ethnic-Russians. “That is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s, when Germany under the Nazis, kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland and Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe,” she said. “So I just want everybody to have a little historic perspective. I am not making a comparison, but I am recommending that we can perhaps learn from this tactic that has been used before.” Meanwhile, we have this: She seems surprised to find herself as a propaganda tool for a nasty regime, but she’s doing something about it, so kudos for that.
Godwin’s law is always appropriate when you’re getting ready to run for President: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the ongoing crisis in Ukraine at a fundraiser in California on Tuesday, comparing Russia’s decision to issue passports in the Crimean region to the “population transfers” carried out by Nazi Germany before World War II. Clinton made the remarks at a $1,500-per-plate fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach at a law firm downtown, Keesal, Young & Logan. I’m convinced. Let’s start World War III then.

Failure obviously ensued. Via The Hill: Newly released documents from the Clinton Presidential Library reveal that Hillary Clinton and her aides have been struggling to manage her media image since the early days of her husband’s administration. The problem is one that’s dogged her throughout her career, hobbled her 2008 presidential bid and could continue […]
Even better is Grimes’ excuse not to be seen with Obama in public: She doesn’t need a “surrogate,” yet she will be campaigning with Bill Clinton tomorrow. Via NRO: Another Democratic senate candidate isn’t eager to have President Obama join her on the campaign trail. Kentucky’s Alison Lundergan Grimes wouldn’t say if she wanted him […]
