>> From Peru, Hillary Clinton has "taken responsibility" for Benghazi. No doubt, on its face, the act would seem to be a heroic effort to take the heat off the President and Vice President as the election nears. But with the Clintons, nothing is ever as it seems. Keep in mind that:

She did this the night before a real make-or-break debate for the President;

By doing it she made Obama and Biden look small and cowardly for seeking to throw her under the bus, thereby elevating her stature while diminishing theirs;

She did nothing to reduce the pressure on the President and Veep to take responsibility -- in fact, she increased it;

She ensured Libya and her move would be a major topic at the must-win debate for Obama tomorrow night (eliminating any possibility that extensive discussion of foreign affairs and Benghazi would be deferred for the foreign policy debate);
Anyone who watched the Clintons throughout the '90's know that both of them are willing to evade accountability and responsibility to a virtually unbelievable degree if they perceive that doing so is to their political advantage. It wasn't that she was worn down. Hillary must have realized that by doing what she did, she at least takes some steps to salvage her own credibility -- while simultaneously heaving Obama and Biden under the bus they were aiming toward her. <<
