Martha Radditz asked Clinton whether she was being two-faced.
Clinton responded by saying if she remembers correctly, the quote was inspired by Doris Kerns Goodwin's "Team of Rivals," which focused on Abraham Lincoln and his cabinet.
Clinton said Lincoln did whatever he could to get the 13th Amendment passed, allowing emancipation of the slaves, by lawmakers who did not support African-American equality.
"I was making the point it is hard sometimes to get the Congress to do what you want them to do. That was a great display of presidential leadership," she said.
Trump rolled his eyes.
"Now she's blaming the late, great Abraham Lincoln," he said. "There's a big, big difference between you and Abraham Lincoln, believe me."
(CN) - Donald Trump is feeling "the Bern" during the second presidential candidate debate. By 10 p.m., he mentioedn Hillary Clinton's primary rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Sanders' contention that Clinton has "bad judgment." Trump has brought it up in reference to questions on a wide variety of issues ranging from foreign policy to taxation to Obamacare.
(CN) - Donald Trump has been repeatedly interrupting Hillary Clinton and talking over the debate moderators.
He also accuses the two moderators of siding with Clinton and refusing to let him answer questions.
"Three against one, that's very nice," he said at one point.
At another, "Why aren't you asking her about her emails?"
Finally, Clinton retorted, "I know that you're into big diversions tonight."

(CN) - The subject turned to Trump's derogatory and often infamatory comments about Muslims and their purported ties to terrorism.
"In San Bernardino, many people saw the bombs all over the apartment," Trump said.
In reality, there is no evidence this was the case. There are anecdotal, fourth- and fifth-hand claims this was the case, but none have ever been confirmed.
(CN) - Donald Trump said iif he was in charge of laws in the U.S., Hillary Clinton would "be in jail" for her handling of classified emails and the "30,000 emails" that have gone missing.
(CN) - Moderator Anderson Cooper asked Donald Trump about the lewd comments he made about women prior to a interview with "Access Hollywood" in 2005.
In the footage captured by "Access Hollywood" Trump described groping women without their permission, and said he would automatically kiss women he considered beautiful.
"I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything," Trump said. "Grab them by the p----. You can do anything," he said.
In the audio, first reported by The Washington Post, Trump also described his sexual advances toward a married woman. "I moved on her like a b----. But I couldn't get there. And she was married," Trump said.
Trump tried to pivot to his views on dealing with the Islamic State Group.
Pressed, Trump reiterated that what he said was "locker room banter" and that he "hates" what he said, and apologizes for it. Asked if he ever acted on some of the things he said on the tape, kissing women without their consent and grabbing their genitals, the GOP presidential candidate said he had note.
Asked to respond, Hillary Clinton spoke at length about derogatory comments Trump has made about women, Muslims, Mexicans, and others.
"It represents exactly who he is," she said of the recording in which Trump made predatory comments about women.
"This is not what Americans want to be," she said.
Trump responded by again pivoting to other issues. "It's words, just words," he said, then going on to discuss a litany of Clinton's failures.
Co-moderator Martha Raddatz again pressed Trump on his comments, and the Republican presidential candidate went on the attack, bringing up accusations of sexual propriety made against President Bill Clinton.
"That was locker room talk. I am not proud of it. That was something that happened. If you look at Bill Clinton, what he has donw is far worse. There has never been anybody in the history of politics that's been so abusive to women," he said.
Trump brought up Bill Clinton's 1998 impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and several other alleged cases of sexual impropriety by the former president.
Clinton responded by saying she believes in the advise offered by First Lady Michelle Obama: "When they go low, you go high."
Later, Trump said Bill Clinton paid a $850,000 "fine" in response to one of his accusers.
In fact, the payment he was referring to was a settlement in a civil lawsuit with Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee. Calling it a fine implies that Clinton was found of wrongdoing, but the settlement included no admission of wrongdoing by Clinton.
A federal judge threw out the lawsuit, and the settlement occurred while the lawsuit was under appeal.

Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey all recounted accusations of sexual improprieties against Bill Clinton.
They did not take questions but repeated some of the claims they made against Clinton going back to the 1990s.
