Missing the Boat

This doesn't make much sense. Hillary Clinton has canceled her plans to attend the rally outside the UN protesting Iranian President Ahmadinejad because she found out Sarah Palin was going to be there:
“Her attendance was news to us, and this was never billed to us as a partisan political event,” Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said Wednesday. “Sen. Clinton will therefore not be attending.”
But if it was supposed to include Palin and Clinton, how was it a partisan event? It's only partisan now that Clinton has backed out - something which won't reflect well on her, and by extension, perhaps Democrats in general and Barack Obama. Then again, perhaps she's not so upset by the idea that Obama could lose.
