ANALYSIS: Benghazi Committee Gives Hillary Clinton Presidential Platform

Hillary Clinton testified in front of the House Select Committee today.

— -- The “get Hillary” committee did not get Hillary.

The highly anticipated all-day-cable affair was the culmination of 17 months of committee work, plus decades worth of GOP-led investigations into all things Clinton. Confronted with this unprecedented spectacle, candidate Clinton chose almost entirely not to engage.

“I imagine I’ve thought more about what happened than all of you put together,” Clinton told committee members. “I’ve lost more sleep than all of you put together.”

The biggest takeaway for many voters is likely to be apathy. The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll found a clear majority of voters disapproving of Clinton’s handling of Benghazi, but also believing Republicans are mainly out to harm her politically.

None of this suggests that Clinton can move beyond Benghazi fallout -- far from it. Heaping stacks of her printed emails included none from the worried ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stephens, who was among four Americans to lose their lives in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.

“I think it's where an opportunity is seized to turn progress in Libya into a political win for Hillary Rodham Clinton,” Roskam said, not really looking for a response.

“I don’t understand why that has anything to do with what we are talking about today,” Clinton countered.

It wasn’t where Clinton wanted to be, but she didn’t waste the chance to deliver a sliver of a stump speech on foreign policy.
