"Hillary Will Run Again." The sub-headline went further: "Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination."
And the lead was declarative:
"Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House."
The piece was written by Mark Penn, a pollster and senior adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton from 1995-2008, and Andrew Stein, former Democratic Manhattan borough president and president of the New York City Council. Yes, the story took two people to write.
The article ticks through a lot of Hillary's history, often referring to the former Democratic presidential nominee as if she's computer software simply being updated.
"Hillary Clinton 2.0 was a moderate, building on the success of her communitarian 'It Takes a Village' appeals and pledging to bring home the bacon for New York. She emphasized her religious background, voiced strong support for Israel, voted for the Iraq war, and took a hard line against Iran," the authors write.
And like Hillary herself, the writers offer lots of lame excuses.
