Writes Dan Balz at the end of his column titled "Is New York’s de Blasio prompting a repositioning by the Clintons?"
"At some point," Hillary, who hasn't spoken yet, will be asked to say something, something more precise, about all these things that she's refrained from speaking about for so long. At some point? At what point? Eventually there will be a point, and when it comes, what difference at this point does it make?
It's a style: Wait long enough and you can say the time has passed for addressing this problem. That's a conservative strategy by the way.
When you see ten troubles rolling down the road, if you don’t do anything, nine of them will roll into the ditch before they get to you.I think President Coolidge said that.
The energy pulsing through the party’s progressive wing won't pulse forever. And when that throbbing tumescence abates, the calm steady woman will be there as ever, waiting for us all to acknowledge her rightful status as President of the United States.
IN THE COMMENTS: Tom Gallagher said: "Doesn't she need to write a book or two before running for president?" And I had to think: Has Hillary ever written a book?
Wikipedia has the full list:
Rodham, Hillary. "There Is Only The Fight...": An Analysis of the Alinsky Model. Senior honors thesis, Wellesley College, 1969. Available at the college archives.Aside from the Alinsky, is there anything of substance there? "Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids' Letters to the First Pet"... come on! Well, there's "Living History," which I'd forgotten about — it was published before I started blogging, so I never bothered with it — and 5 years before she ran for President the first time. Absolutely nothing since then. I mentioned Calvin Coolidge in the post. They called him Silent Cal. We could call her Silent Hill. Here's the movie trailer:
