Hillary Clinton focuses on humanizing her image

Hillary Clinton focuses on humanizing her image

With Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2016 presidential run looking like a foregone conclusion, the question now is whether she has a message.

Fresh off a visit to Iowa and two events last week in Washington where she sought to reconnect with female voters, Clinton has sounded increasingly like a candidate. She hints at her presidential ambitions with wink-and-a-nod asides like the one in Iowa: “It is true, I’m thinking about it.”

Yet in framing what she described Friday as her “long career of fighting for women, and children, and fairness, and equality, and justice,” Clinton has nearly mastered the art of avoiding controversy, offering dry speeches and a pitch that seems intended to be inoffensive.
