The momentum gained by Hillary's victories is dissipating. Most of her supporters were rightly concerned about the long gap till the next primary. As feared, the entire media narrative is now focussed on the horse race and into a terrain unsuited for a master of the real issues facing the country. In addition to her local appearance, Senator Clinton needs to have a relaxed long conversation about the issues with the national press by executing a full Ginsburg. She can also seize the opportunity to clock the interlocutors for focusing on the horse race. She should deflect all the horse race questions and who said what when by doggedly laying out the case why the country needs her after the seven years of despotic republican misrule. She can also use the opportunity to lay out how , because of the changed circumstances she will be different from Bill Clinton. Even if she is not the nominee it will memorialize for the democrats what could have been.
