Clinton's comment in Aspen

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air seems to agree with Jeffrey Goldberg that a comment Bill Clinton made at the Aspen Ideas Festival was a jab at John McCain. Here's the comment in question:
“Every living soul on this planet has some highly-justified anger. Everyone. If you know anybody who was a P.O.W. for any time, they can be going on for years and all of a sudden something will happen that will trigger all those bad memories.”
But in watching the video in context, it seems unlikely. Matter of fact, if anything he's explaining McCain's temper and nullifying it by comparing him to Nelson Mandela.

After Hillary lost there was a notion that Slick might secretly work to get McCain elected so wifey (and him) would have another shot at the White House in 2012. If anything this quip might prove it's still be in play.
