AUDIO CLIP: 2006 Audio Emerges of Hillary Clinton Proposing Rigging Palestine Election

The Observer REPORTED on Wednesday, Hillary Clinton is heard suggesting the 2006 Palestinian Election should have been rigged. 

The quote is from a 2006 interview between Clinton and Eli Chmosky of the Jewish Press during her campaign for reelection to the US senate, and was part of a previously un-aired portion.

In the recording Clinton, who is speaking to the Jewish Press about the January 25, 2006, election for the second Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority), weighed in about the result, which was a resounding victory for Hamas (74 seats) over the U.S.-preferred Fatah (45 seats).
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.

The last statement is damning, and suggests that "making sure" that the desired party wins is something of a noram among top Washington circles, even if thrown around in jest.
