Hillary Clinton, speaking at the American Bar Association's annual meeting in San Francisco Monday night, botched the name of civil rights icon Medgar Evers. The former secretary of state and first lady was recounting the story of one of her mentors, lawyer John Doar.
"In 1963, in Jackson, Mississippi, John stepped between angry protesters and armed police to prevent a potential massacre after the murder of Medgar Evans," said Clinton, who was referring to Medgar Evers, a civil rights activist who was murdered while walking into his home on June 12, 1963.

She’s a regular Norman Einstein.
Actually, Medgar *Evans* was the guy assassinated after he was caught burning black churches in Arkansas. It’s rather easy to get one’s Medgars confused. Bob
Probably from all those years drinking with Tedward.
Presidential material, all right. Has she visited all 57 or 58 states yet, or is she still working on that?

What difference, at this point, does it make?
Sir Edmund, if you are going to try to be patronizing at least get your facts straight first.
Where did “Evans” burn churches? It wasn’t in Arkansas during the sixties.
From the DailyRepublican - Clinton’s Arkansas Democrat Party constituents don’t think He could have remembered such fires, since there were not any according to John Ferguson, director of the Arkansas History Commission. Former Arkansas State Senator, Jerry Jewell who served as a President of the State NAACP from 1959-1973 told the Arkansas Gazette on Monday “I’ve never known of a black church being burned in Arkansas.”
she could have called him the “n” word and it wouldn’t matter. She served her time in support of obama so she’s good to go again.
Tinker to Evers to Chance.
Exactly. There were NO black churches burned down in the 60’s, despite the fact that Hillary’s husband “remembered” this. Both Clintons are pathetic liars.
She's a botch, that's for sure.
And she makes such timeless speeches. Like that guy from England, Marlboro Churchill.
