It may start with a heartwarming tale of reconciliation over chardonnay with Barack Obama, but former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s long-awaited memoir has left Washington pondering a carefully cultivated sense of her distance from the president that will only strengthen rumours of a second attempt at the White House.
Rumours? There’s nothing short of the Second Coming that will stop her running.
If she were to die before the election they’d run the corpse as the candidate.
Whether she will win is another matter of course. I think it would be quite fun to have a female President: but please, dear God, not this one.
