Clinton appears to meet some of the criteria of a full apology; “...include acknowledging the offense, taking responsibility, and either offering a form of recompense, or assuring the offended parties it would not happen again.”(138) as Eisinger described, but he fails to clearly state his offense, offer recompense or assure offended parties it wouldn 't happen again.

    I have always been a K9 lover. It never fails to amaze me how ordinary people trade in dogs for these hissing, stubborn, self-centered felines we call cats.
