...just how many stories on her appearance led with speculation that she might address the issue, just as you thought she might.

What a circus! I caught the live feed late and was only able to watch her greeting supporters and others in the crowd. I was struck by her ease and engagement with those greeting her. She will be a formidable candidate, if only for her ability to posture as 'Hillary Clinton;' more of an icon to admirers and critics alike, than a slate on which to influence with new ideas or transform with dissenting views. She is politics personified; an organ of elections, as opposed to a movement politician, all organization and networking cloaked in a seasoned guile for the ebb and flow of our democratic system of elections. Every cynical, hapless attempt at scandalizing her just feeds and enhances Hillary's own sense of omnipotence.

I think this is why so many folks view Elizabeth Warren as a natural foil to Hillary Clinton. Warren is as accessible and fluid in her populism, as Clinton is remote and practiced in her establishment politics; actual movement over mere ascension. We desperately need someone as dynamic as the senator from Mass., if we have any hope of shifting the status quo of politics beyond the current compromising standard.
