Clinton Freezes the Field

Chris Cillizza notes the race for president in 2016 won't start until Hillary Clinton "makes clear what she's doing."

"Clinton knows that she is currently freezing the field with the-door-remains-slightly-open statements like 'I have no intention' to run for president. Having no intention to run is not even close to the same thing as ruling out the race. Words matter in politics and no one understands just how much better than Clinton."

"She also knows that her ability to keep the race frozen in place has a shelf life and if she waits too long to decide she will lose a fair amount of the political goodwill she has built up in the party."
