Why This Campaign is SO MUCH FUN!

Hillary Clinton: I Totally Oppose That Trade Agreement I Negotiated In 2012

45 times Secretary Clinton pushed the trade bill she now opposes

Clinton said "great things about NAFTA until she started running for president."
— Barack Obama on Sunday, February 24th, 2008 in Lorain, Ohio

But if Joe Biden runs, it will be a character campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Emailgate is a political problem for Hillary Clinton, but it also reveals why she'd be an effective president Matthew Yglesias

Clinton is clearly more comfortable than the average person with violating norms and operating in legal gray areas. This is, for him [Yglesias], a point in her favor: Committed Democrats and liberal-leaning interest groups are facing a reality in which any policy gains they achieve are going to come through the profligate use of executive authority, and Clinton is almost uniquely suited to deliver the goods. More than almost anyone else around, she knows where the levers of power lie, and she is comfortable pulling them, procedural niceties be damned.
