Hillary Clinton's gaffe? RFK Assassination

Friday afternoon, Hillary Clinton told the editorial board of the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Argus Leader that "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said.

Be sure to have your volume turned on

What did she mean exactly? Did she simply misspeak? (DO the Clintons misspeak?) Was the stress on June and did she mean that many times the Democratic nomination isn't wrapped up until June? By all accounts, her husband actually had the nomination wrapped up in late March 1992. Additionally, the Democratic primary in 1968 had only begun in March so by June, there had not been a protracted race. Was there a more sinister meaning to her assassination reference? We really don't know what she meant but we would love to hear your take on this controversial incident.
