Hillary Mistakenly Calls Lincoln ‘A Senator From Illinois’
Daily Caller ^ | 6-11-14 | Brendan Bordelon

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton mixed up her Lincoln history in the land of Lincoln, mistakenly referring to the 16th president as “a senator from Illinois” during a speaking engagement in Chicago on Wednesday.

Clinton made the misstatement while promoting her new book “Hard Choices” with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was President Obama’s chief of staff while she was secretary of state.

“I actually write about Rahm in the book,” she said. “I asked him not to read it before we sat and did our interview. But it was in the very first chapter, the chapter I rightly call ‘Team of Rivals’ because that’s what it was in the beginning.”

“A senator from Illinois ran against a senator from New York,” she continued. ”Just as had happened way back with a senator from Illinois named Lincoln and a senator from New York named Seward. And it turned out the same way.”

Did anyone, even Hillary's fiercest fanatics, ever really swallow that "smartest woman in the world" claptrap?

What the last five+ years have shown is, not all Illinois lawyers are created equal!

Lincoln was never a Senator. He lost his senate race to his arch rival Stephen Douglas.

DOH!

Moreover, Lincoln never ran against Seward or any Senator from New York.

He won the 1860 election against Stephen Douglas (the real Senator from Illinois in the race), and the incumbent President John Breckinridge from Kentucky, with a 4th candidate from Tennessee thrown in for good measure.

So actually she was wrong in pretty much every detail.

This isn’t the only gross error this old hag will make, but the Democrat media will be busy “moving on” every day. The Hilary campaign can hire a team of embalmers to do her makeup so that she appears to be 40, but they can’t do anything about creeping dementia.

Obviously, Hiidebeast has lost some of her "grey matter". Whether it was the hit on the head or just old age, I certainly don't want her finger on the trigger!! She is clearly damaged.

Once Moochie Obama squatted in the White House the media and leftist nutballs decided that Moochie was the smartest woman in the world and bumped Hillary down to second place.

what difference does it make

hmmmm....there are three possibilities for this blunder

1. She depended on really lousy proof-readers (indicates an inability to choose good staff)

2. She never read the book (indicating she's lazy about keeping up on things)

3. She read the book herself and didn't spot the error (indicating she doesn't know much US presidential history)

Any one of those three choices would put her light years behind Ted Cruz or Jeff Sessions, for example.
