Expecting Hillary Rodham Clinton to blast away at Sarah Palin, after the GOP veep candidate made a direct appeal to Clinton's white, female base?

Not so much.

Her statement:

"We should all be proud of Gov. Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Sen. McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Gov. Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.”
