I’d have to say that it really looks like Hillary was caught in a gross exaggeration:
Hillary made the above statements in a speech where she was trying to taut her bonafides for that "3 a.m." call.
But now, there’s video (see above). And now, she’s starting to backwalk. She apparently "misspoke", but that’s even a bit of a stretch. She recounted the story several times and in several ways. it wasn’t like a slip of the tongue.
All in all, not a good thing for the Clinton campaign.
