Clinton Confidants Think She's Running

New York magazine has a must-read profile and interview with Hillary Clinton:

"Clintonworld, however, speaks with many voices­--albeit many of them not for attribution. Some of her close confidants, including many people with whom her own staff put me in touch, are far less circumspect than she is. 'She's running, but she doesn't know it yet,' one such person put it to me. 'It's just like a force of history. It's inexorable, it's gravitational. I think she actually believes she has more say in it than she actually does.'"

"And a longtime friend concurs. 'She's doing a very Clintonian thing. In her mind, she's running for it, and she's also convinced herself she hasn't made up her mind. She's going to run for president. It's a foregone conclusion.'"

The Fix has a good summary of the entire piece.
