The Myth of Inevitability

Joe Klein: "We are sure to be smothered by Hillary (or hillary!, as an old campaign button had it) well past the summer solstice... I approach the coming spectacle with a combination of obsession, exhaustion, dread and exhilaration. This is going to be horrible fun - and crucial, as the Clintons always are... Some presidential campaigns are about inevitability. Others are about energy. The best have both, but it's rare: inevitability tends to crush energy."

"I've seen her candor more than once, but always off the record. That will have to change. If Hillary Clinton hopes to succeed, she's going to have to drop the veil - spontaneously, quite possibly in a crucial moment, like a debate - and trust the public to accept who she really is. Absent that, there is no such thing as inevitability."
