That strikes many as not a tarnished gold standard, but a politically expedient decision.” (The New York Times, 10/13/15)

Yahoo! News’ Michael Isikoff: “Correcting The Record [Dem Debate] Hillary Didn't Say She ‘Hoped’ TPP Would Be Gold Standard; She Said In 2012 ‘This TPP Sets The Gold Standard.’” (Twitter.com, 10/13/15)

The Associated Press’ Christopher S. Rugaber And Calvin Woodward: “Clinton Offered Some Revisionist History… When Insisting She's Not A Flip-Flopper [On TPP].” “Hillary Rodham Clinton offered some revisionist history Tuesday night when insisting she's not a flip-flopper on a trade deal that she heartily promoted as secretary of state but turned against last week as a Democratic presidential candidate.” (The Associated Press, 10/13/15)

The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin: “[Clinton] Shows Some Weakness On [Flip-Flops].” Martin Tweet: “After a sterling night, Hillary finally shows some weakness on we all flip-flop.” (Twitter.com, 10/13/15)

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman: “Real Bad Moment… Talking About The Keystone Pipeline And Saying, ‘I Never Took A Position On Keystone Until I Took A Position On Keystone.’” “Clinton also had her first real bad moment in the debate, talking about the Keystone pipeline and saying, ‘I never took a position on Keystone until I took a position on Keystone.’” (The New York Times, 10/13/15)
