"I think everyone knows that I am very, very sorry for my vote to approve the invasion of Iraq. It was a mistake, and I promise that there will only be one or two mistakes of equal or worse magnitude than the war with Iraq," stated Clinton, who touted her experience of "learning from her mistakes" as one of her strengths as a presidential candidate.

Clinton continued, "There will almost certainly be a war with Iran while I am president. I probably won't find the time to make a second massive mistake like invading Iran during my time in office, but I do not want to sell myself short. So I promise not to make more than two massive foreign policy mistakes during my presidency."
"This doesn't cover the domestic mistakes I will make, like doing next to nothing about income inequality and my friends on Wall Street robbing the middle class and poor in broad daylight with the government's tacit approval," explained Clinton, who laughed when asked if she would "split up the banks."
At the end of the press conference, Secretary Clinton asserted, "no one can be more sorry than I am about my past and future mistakes."
