It all stems though from Draco disarming Dumbledore against his will in HBP. Once Draco showed some superiority and "defeated" Dumbledore by taking his wand, the wand chose Draco as its new master. It didn't matter that Draco fled shortly after and never had the wand in his posession.

The wands "last master" that Harry disarmed /defeated was Draco. Since Harry took Draco's wand against Draco's will the wand went on to chose Harry as its new rightful master. Snape was never the master of the wand because he didn't defeat Dumbledore against his will...Dumbledore asked him to kill him.
Exactly, Snape didn't defeated Dumbledore by killing him, Draco did by disarming him. And when Draco was disarmed by Harry he was the new owner of the Elder wand. That part is a bit of a stretch, but I see where she went with it.
