What if Hillary Clinton had to apologize for Bill?

How would she put it?

"If anything was said by anyone that caused any offense..."

``Any'' occurs in non-assertive contexts, like negatives and conditionals.

It's not an apology ; Erving Goffman on what an apology is.

The media have taken the word apology from its moorings to fit it into a soap narrative.

I liked her "Oh, Bob" remark when Bob Shiefer asked her about Bill. Is she chaneling Emily, Bob Newhart's TV wife?

Oh, Hillary, you are so likeable!
