From Politico:

Obama: "I'm sure she would have restated it.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer: "She'll stand by the entire speech."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein: "It’s not the right thing, but I don’t think she meant it that way either."

Sen. Arlen Specter: "I think she meant that somebody with her experience has something to add."

Sen. Patrick Leahy: "...it would be ridiculous to think somebody's life experience doesn't affect them."
