If “I don’t remember” was Hillary Clinton’s most common answer to the FBI during the notorious softball interview that led the agency to give her a pass on the criminal charges of which she is so obviously guilty, “that was a mistake” was the first and perhaps most common answer she gave moderator Matt Lauer during last night’s “Commander in Chief” forum.
