If only we could get to know the real Hillary Clinton.
Unveiling the Hillary we supposedly don’t know has been the perpetual, elusive goal of Clinton’s handlers for decades, with the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia the latest stab at it.
On “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” on Sunday morning, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook hopefully maintained that a lot of Americans simply “don’t understand” Hillary’s devotion to others, and the convention aims to give them this “fuller picture.” Or as a CNN headline put it, “Hillary Clinton prepares to reintroduce herself to America.”
Again. Hillary has made more re-introductions than should be allowed for a person who has never gone away.
Political writer Jonathan Rauch has a 14-year rule that posits no one is elected president more than 14 years after winning election as a governor or senator (the traditional jumping-off points for the presidency).
