Claire McCaskill Says She’s Apologized To Bill And Hillary Clinton

WASHINGTON Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill shes apologized to Bill and Hillary Clinton for comments she made in 2006 that she said were not necessary.

In a BuzzFeed Brews interview with bureau chief John Stanton, McCaskill an early supporter of a potential Hillary run in 2016 said she had spoken with the Clintons about her Meet the Press comments where she said Bill Clinton had been a great leader but I dont want my daughter near him.

Heres the deal. I said a lot of things in the last 30 years that Im not particularly proud of. I mean there have been things that Ive said that I wish I could take back and I said that.but it was not necessary. It was gratuitous and hurtful and I have apologized to both President Clinton and Hillary Clinton for saying it, McCaskill said.

The once-rocky relationship between McCaskill and the Clintons hit more difficulties when McCaskill become one of the earliest supporters of then-candidate Barack Obama.
