Comments

I wouldn't go so far as calling it a misquote as much as an interpretation. While the jab was directly aimed at Bush, the implication is that Hillary is saying she is the candidate of substance and not image. If that isn't a veiled attack on Obama, what is?

Mo MoDo's idea that Hillary's comment was a veiled shot at Obama makes sense to me. George Bush can be criticized for having the wrong policies, but not for a lack of policies.

However, IMHO that doesn't excuse MoDo's misattribution. She might have been OK if she had written, "Hillary implied Obama is 'all hat and no cattle.'” As it is, I think a correction is required.
