I am sure no politician...but I don’t get this...

First Hillary says it’s her responsibity and let’s O off the hook.

One, they hope to confuse by going back and forth on that. Two, they hope to make points by hollowly mouthing the words “I take responsibility. Three, they are signalling a talking point for media propaganda hacks to pick up and use to defend them both.
