Clinton comparing America to Nigeria

According to ABC news:
Answering a question about Nigeria's recent election, Clinton said, "In 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for President was the governor of the state. So we have our problems too."
The article later explains:
Nigeria is considered one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Wide-spread voter fraud was reported in Nigeria's last general election in 2007, which saw now President Umaru Yar'Adua declared the winner. Accusations of missing ballot boxes, inflated voter counts and even some voters being shot at polling stations were made by opposition candidates.
Using Hillary's logic I suppose she could also compare America to Nazi Germany: "Yeah, they killed six million Jews but innocent prisoners have been executed in America too."

One might expect to hear this kind of "moral equivalency" argument from our worst enemies. To hear such apologies coming from Democrats like our own Secretary of State and even from our President is painfully agonizing to those of us who love this country.

Clinton could have said: "In 2008, Minnesota's election came down to many 'newly discovered' votes for a failed comedian. So we have our problems too."
