If Hillary Clinton really isn't arguing that the Democratic presidential nomination has turned into a boys-against-girl thing, how is it that Bill Clinton was caught saying Monday that "those boys have been getting tough on her lately"?

The answer, at least the one provided to the New York Times by some unidentified "Clinton advisors": The former president was simply speaking in the Southern vernacular of his Arkansas youth.
