Tacky, albeit less gratuitous than when Mitt pulled this move on McCain. There it seemed mostly out of spite; here it was designed, assuredly, to deny Hillary a platform for a “major” address contrasting her own record with that of His Holiness. Watch closely and you’ll see he appears right around the time she starts talking about experience and the ability to lead on day one. I question the timing.

How important is that big win in Texas she’s counting on next month? Not as important as she’d like.
