As the hat hovers above the ring...


Dodgy friends with money, tenuous claims to any sense of a home base, a tetchy, persecution-driven style, the constant rolling out of "the New" self to test a different sort of planned authenticity: the she-Clinton is starting to look like Richard Nixon in a pants suit:
Clinton aides want to reintroduce her with “humility,” the source added. “They are making sure she understands there are no guarantees, and I think we’re going to see that in her posture and her words. I don’t think people are expecting that.”
And in the boiler room, they're dealing with the 3 a.m. phone call questions:
“We still don’t know why she wants to run,” said the operative. “That’s what she has to explain to the American people in her announcement. It’s not that it will establish whether Hillary Clinton is running for president, but why she is running for president.” 
Allies admit their nightmare is that without a clear justification for her campaign, Clinton could draw comparisons to Ted Kennedy’s rambling, incoherent and campaign-dooming answer in 1980 to a softball question: “Why do you want to be president?”
