Huffington Columnist Susan Rice on the 3am Phone Call
In this election we have two candidates who will manipulate the truth and one, Senator Obama, who will tell it.
Last night on Tucker Carlson's show, I said that Senator Clinton, Senator Obama, and Senator McCain have never had to answer that proverbial 3 a.m. crisis phone call; only a commander in chief has shouldered that unique burden.
You can watch what I actually said. The full transcript of this portion of my interview is below.
Rather than acknowledge this indisputable truth, Senator Clinton's campaign chose to edit selectively and thus grossly distort my words in a video it sent to reporters and posted on Youtube. Senator McCain's campaign also misrepresented and manipulated my statement.
