First she "misspoke," now she misheard.
Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday seemed to deny that she told New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson that Barack Obama could not win the presidency.
But her campaign later said she misheard a reporter's question.
"We have been going back and forth in this campaign of who said what to whom and let me say this, that I don't talk about private conversations but I have consistently made the case that I can win."
Clinton has come under fire in recent weeks about inconsistent statements.
She admitted late last month, that she "misspoke" when she claimed she had dodged bullets while arriving in Bosnia as first lady.
She poked fun at the controversy last night in an appearance on "The Tonight Show" telling host Jay Leno, "I was so worried I wasn't going to make it. I was pinned down by sniper fire."
The latest misstep came as supporters of Obama called her claims that he can't win the desperate act of a losing candidate.
"I'm sure she is frustrated," said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who supports Obama.
"Up until late last year, the common wisdom around here was that Hillary Clinton had it. In fact, there are many who even thought that Barack Obama was probably being foolish to try."
Now that Clinton is 135 delegates behind Obama in the race for the Democratic nomination, she and her loyalists have begun arguing that Obama cannot win.
"Sen. Clinton is absolutely qualified to be president, and I am sure it is difficult for her to see herself behind," said Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), a superdelegate who has endorsed Obama.
Clinton, who has been courting superdelegates to catch Obama, hinted yesterday that she would go after pledged delegates.
Pledged delegates are a "misnomer," she said. "The whole point is for delegates, however they are chosen, to really ask themselves who would be the best president."

NY Post just hasn't got the caliber of truthfulness that NY Times has. Check there for Hillary articles instead.
That being said, she's a few ticks of the clock away from 'done'.
It's now or never Hillary.
INSPIRE PEOPLE! For god's sake!
No-one likes a campaign of negativity. NO-ONE!
