Clinton Hype Poses Risks for Potential Candidacy

"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," NBC News reports.

'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."

Said one Democrat: "I think people close to her are more acutely aware than anybody else in the country that there's no such thing as inevitability."
