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 Governor Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.”
