Ooops! Pardon my misspeak

Remarks Were Not an Attack, Hillary Clinton Tells Obama

Hillary Rodham Clinton called President Obama on Tuesday to assure him that comments she made in a recent interview with The Atlantic were not intended “to attack him, his policies or his leadership,” according to a statement released by Mrs. Clinton’s spokesman.

“Secretary Clinton has at every step of the way touted the significant achievements of his presidency, which she is honored to have been part of as his secretary of state,” said the statement released by the spokesman, Nick Merrill. “Like any two friends who have to deal with the public eye, she looks forward to hugging it out when they see each other tomorrow night.”

That is when Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are set to attend a party on Martha’s Vineyard held by Vernon E. Jordan Jr., a longtime friend to former President Bill Clinton.

Six years have passed since Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama sparred over foreign policy during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. During the writing and rollout this year of her memoir “Hard Choices,” she avoided outright criticism of the president and his policies.
