    but from their standpoint, this is waayy too early.  Yes, I know that they will "remind" people over the next 2.5 years, but wouldn't that just dilute the impact?  I guess that don't have anything better to do.  Not good for them if that's true.  They just can't seem to find someone to sincerely and enthusiastically get behind, so this is what they are left with.

    •  I think you're right about that. (0+ / 0-)

      Worse, it will dilute the impact of any new non-shocking or obviously-debilitating health issue.

      "Oh, that again? These guys never give up, do they?"

    •  They're trying to draw her out (0+ / 0-)

      She's busy attending her plutocrat dinners and hiding behind the OH!!!! WOW!!!!! HILLARY!!! let's nominate her before she has to state a position on any issue crowd.

      Heck, if the Republicans figure out a way to smoke her out of the closed door dinners, I'll be thrilled.  Maybe we'll find out if she wants to do anything more than have dinner with rich people.

        She's been giving tons of public speeches on income inequality, voting rights, and women's rights.  God knows the pundits have whipped themselves into a frenzy each time, asking "What does this mean for a potential candidacy???"

        Just two examples easily found on video:

        Speech to New America Foundation on Economic Inequality (May 16, 2014)

        Roundtable at Women of the World Summit(April 2014)

        She also, you know, ran for president in 2008, and had a platform.

        She also was Secretary of State for the four years, and made her positions known on many things as well, though obviously speaking as a surrogate of the Obama administration.

        I'm mystified by any claim that she hasn't made her positions and agenda clear.  She hasn't stopped talking about issues for thirty years.
