Clinton's First Race Could Be Model For Next One

"The most urgent question Hillary Clinton would face if she were to run again for president is whether she could avoid the blunders -- the bitter staff rivalries going public, the poisonous relationship with the press, the presumption of inevitability -- that helped doom her campaign five years ago," Politico reports.

"There's one powerful piece of evidence that she could -- her own bid for New York senator in 2000... It's easy to forget just how precarious a venture Clinton was embarking on back then. The Clintons were fresh from the impeachment battle. The first lady was one the most polarizing figures in the country, surrounded by an international media swarm. The early betting was she couldn't break through the protective bubble of Secret Service agents and advisers to forge a meaningful connection with voters."
