Hillary hype poses risks for a potential 2016 candidacy
Posted by Staff
NBC reports:

Hillary Clinton's lofty status as the apparent 2016 Democratic nominee-in-waiting has some allies concerned that the hype might be too much, too soon.

This seeming inevitability makes her more sensitive to attacks and risks amplifying any stumble, no matter how minor. And voters may react poorly to a candidate who appears to be waltzing to the nomination with minimal effort.

“I think people close to her are more acutely aware than anybody else in the country that there's no such thing as inevitability,” said a Democrat with ties to Clinton, who requested anonymity to speak more freely about her political calculus. Facebook Fark Furl
