Hillary for President!

HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT!….Fox News says breathlessly, “Clock Ticking For a Hillary Presidential Bid,” and Josh Chafetz has exactly the right response:

Guys, she’s not running. She’s said all along she’s not running. It doesn’t make political sense for her to run this year. She may — may — accept a Vice-Presidential nomination, if one were offered and if she thought the Dem nominee really had a chance of winning. But she’s not running for the top spot. She’s just not.

My only disagreement with Josh is that I don’t think he was quite emphatic enough. (Oh, and she’s not running for veep either.)

I swear, conservatives are just obsessed with Hillary. Can’t they find someone else to fantasize about?
