How interesting: “Hillary Clinton and her close advisers are telling Democratic donors that she will enter the presidential race sooner than expected, likely in April, a move that would allay uncertainties within her party and allow her to rev up fundraising.” Not least because such a move implies that there were unexpected and unanticipated problems along those lines. Which probably everyone reading this could have told the Clinton campaign ahead of time, assuming that the Clinton campaign had had the mother-wit to ask anyone for real feedback.
The rest of the WSJ article is probably going to be filled with things that you already know, but this passage is still of note: “Mrs. Clinton, according to some close associates, doesn’t relish the campaign trail…” Really? Really? I find that a little hard to believe; because the only way that a candidate can overcome a visceral dislike of campaigning is to be so good at it that it doesn’t matter. And Hillary Clinton, is, sad to say, not a very good campaigner.
Oh, the fun we will have. Yeah, I know that I said that in 2008 and 2012, too. I also said it in 2004, and the only reason I didn’t say it in 2000 was because I was a lot less political back then. That’s the thing about eight year cycles: they, well, cycle.
