It makes none // But now you have gone // And you must be looking very old tonight

For my part I totally understood Hillary Clinton’s statement “What difference does it make?” when it comes to Benghazi. What difference indeed does what actually happened there make to furthering this Smart Person’s Important and Historic Career Aspirations? (Which is all that counts here.)

This is a useful incident because I think it exemplifies and distills the difference between left and right in a single, short statement. The right will never, ever convince the left that it ‘makes a difference’, and the left will never convince the right that it doesn’t. There’s almost no point in talking about it. Which makes it fascinating to think about.

I’m not sure in what direction to go with her comments. She said the following things in direct succession:
1. “What difference does it make who did it and why at this point?”
2. “We gave to found out how this happened and who did it and make sure it never happens again.”

Now I am a self identifying fan of Hilary’ Clinton’s stint, but those seem like blatantly contradictory statements.

LOL, that would be funny if her #2 was really what you wrote verbatim (including the ‘who did it’ part). But let’s give her more credit than that! Her actual #2 was:

“It is our job to figure out what happened and to do everything we can to make sure it never happens again”

I would say those first four words are the operative part of this sentence. Wouldn’t you agree? :-)

Yeah, I mean it was clearly a ‘question dodge.’ I can give her credit for being slippery at the very least…
