This weekend, Hillary Clinton, who is trying valiantly to distance herself from Barack Obama's policies in anticipation of an inevitable 2016 run, decided to air her thoughts on "trickle-down economics" and ended up telling a gathered crowd of Massachusetts Democrats that corporations and businesses don't create jobs.
Now, it's not as though anyone who already didn't like Hillary Clinton was somehow swayed by the statement, as ill-advised and ill-constructed as it was. As we've learned in the first leg of her national speaking circuit, Hillary Clinton barely even needs to appear in B-roll on the news to watch her negatives fly. But Clinton herself was concerned enough about the coverage her statement got that yesterday evening, she tried to iron everything out. She didn't succeed. But she tried.
