To us, Hillary Clinton's private email server is the gift that keeps on giving—we've read about her struggles with work-life balance, analyzed her compliment acceptance style, and giggle-cringed at her plaintive "Can I go?"—but lately, it's been weighing more and more heavily on her approval rating. Clinton's camp must have felt it was time to give the people what they wanted, because on Tuesday evening, she directly apologized in an interview with ABC.

One day after she asserted "what [she] did was allowed," Clinton changed her tone from defensive to contrite. "That was a mistake. I'm sorry about that. I take responsibility," she said. "And I'm trying to be as transparent as I possibly can."

"I am confident by the end of this campaign, people will know they can trust me, and that I will be on their side and I will fight for them and their families," Clinton said in her interview with ABC. "But I do think I could have and should have done a better job answering questions earlier. I really didn't, perhaps, appreciate the need to do that."
