There was very little news to come out of Hillary Clinton’s appearance at Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-Iowa) Iowa Steak Fry this weekend, other than the fact that Hillary was at it, but the political press did decide to fixate on one quote from the event, a quote that wasn’t from her, and wasn’t really news.
