Despite Hillary Clinton blaming Russia for the WikiLeaks document dumps and slamming Donald Trump as a puppet of Vladimir Putin during the presidential debate, she was still confident she could strike a deal with the Russian nation.
“I think we could strike a deal and make it clear to the Russians and the Syrians that this was something that we believe was in the best interest of the people on the ground in Syria,” she said, referring to her promise to implement a no-fly zone in Syria.

The Democratic presidential nominee offered up what one journalist called her “cataclysmic position” even though critics have warned the move would cause open war with Russia and Syria.
Well done to Chris Wallace for probing the implications of HRC’s cataclysmic position on the “No-Fly Zone,” which both Obama & Trump oppose

No-fly zones are war. Hillary can deny that, but it’s true. https://t.co/7DnBO9U5Nt

Hillary Clinton’s proposal of a no-fly zone is incredibly reckless & will ultimately lead to war with Russia. This is NOT acceptable #debate

Putin may not be so willing to work on that deal after Clinton has blamed Russia for almost everything that is wrong with her campaign.
How is Hillary going to strike a deal with the Russians when she keeps blaming them for her mistakes?

Hillary needs to stop blaming Russia and come to grips with the fact that she can’t lie anymore! #debate

Her non-answers on implications of a no-fly zone as well as her anti-Putin rant during the debate turned off many who questioned the logic of striking a deal with Russia. But then, as recent hacked emails have shown, Democrats are pretty good at deal making.
