  •  Bush would say he wasn't willing to do so. (0+ / 0-)

    So, Hillary apparently wouldn't be willing to do so either.

    Otherwise, she would have given Obama's answer.

      •  Well, is it fair to infer the same about Hillary, (1+ / 0-)

        given that she deliberately chose to repudiate Obama's answer?

          You don't have to infer anything about Clinton because she answered a question with some teeth, even though you don't think it was the question that was asked.

          The interviewer asked her if she'd be willing to do something?

          She replied she could not commit to doing so because she knows that anyone at all can say they'd be willing to do something.  That people want to hear what candidates will commit (or not commit) to doing.

          Again, I'm sorry, this whole idea that "willingly" just means "yeah, I'd kind of like to if I can," I don't think that was the intent of the question, I fully believe if we asked the guy who asked the question what he meant, I believe it is more the commitment sort of thing than any of Obama's camp would be comfortable with at this time.

          He was an interviewer asking if the potential employee would be willing to do something.

          Interviewers don't ask if a candidate is willing to do something if they don't expect that candidate to do it!
