9. Hillary once admitted she was wrong on Patriot Act?

Found the following in a discussion forum.
Anyone know if it is legitimate? (You never know what you will find online--anybody could just make up anything, of course.)

Clinton allegedly said this during a get-out-the-vote speech in Racine, Wisconsin on February 15, 2004:

Everyone knows that I hate to admit I was wrong on anything, but the reality is when I voted for the PATRIOT act, I was wrong. Your Senator Russ Feingold, was right to think that this would be abused. And the fact is it's been abused worse than he, or any other Senator or Congressman could have predicted, which is why at this moment I am calling for the resignation of Attorney General John Ashcroft and Solicitor General Theodore Olson, two individuals responsible for assisting in the crafting of the PATRIOT act, and in putting politics ahead of sound, reasonable law at the Justice Department.
