Time's Michael Grunwald has an excellent article about the broken Clinton spin machine:
The Clinton spin machine has been consistent[:] Nebraska, Idaho and Utah didn't matter because they were deep-red states. South Carolina, Louisiana and Georgia didn't matter because they had large percentages of black voters... For a moment, it looked like Missouri might matter when the networks called it for Hillary -- her campaign quickly bragged about winning a "closely contested toss-up state" -- but the networks were wrong.
When Sen. Clinton maintains that there was a "credible case" for that war, as she did in the last debate, she is not simply spinning some campaign narrative. She is using her authority as a U.S. Senator to legitimize the war, which makes it harder to end. And that is not self-parody, it is tragedy.
