time for a full ginsburg

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.

You know what would really help Hillary Clinton's candidacy at this moment? If she could lay out a straightforward, feasible path to how she wins the nomination. I think that's what a lot in the media are waiting for.

Not now. While I think she should do it again, the terrain is not in her favor. If she does a full Ginsburg now, the focus will be on Tuzla. She should wait and do it one or two weeks before the PA primary or even the week after the PA primary where she is likely to win.

I would rather not let Tuzla harden. Now is the time to confront it and show up the fact that the press is focusing on trivial matters. Even Charlie Rose would be a good start. Very few voters watch it but media does take its cue from the show.
