Clinton Defends Obama, Tones it Down

Rather stunning on the face of it:

President Bush’s comparison of any Democrat to Nazi appeasers is both offensive and outrageous on the face of it, especially in light of his failures in foreign policy. This is the kind of statement that has no place in any presidential address and certainly to use an important moment like the 60th anniversary celebration of Israel to make a political point seems terribly misplaced. Unfortunately, this is what we’ve come to expect from President Bush.

If Obama was taking it from 2 sides earlier in the race, it now seems Hillary is ready to run interference as it were on Republican attacks on Obama.

Maybe the NARAL and Edwards endorsements put her ideas of victory to bed? Maybe auditioning for VP? Or maybe just mending her own intraparty bridges?
