Apparently Hillary's previous denials were not as firm as many supposed:
Clinton loyalists were startled yesterday to hear former President Bill Clinton suggest that his wife hasn't made up her mind yet about running for the White House. Asked in Monterey, Calif., on Tuesday about chatter that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) might join the crowded Democratic field, the former President hinted that it remained an open question. "That's really a decision for her to make," he said, according to The Californian newspaper.
She's certainly denied it often enough to be convincing to most:
The former President's statement tantalized Democrats who have heard the senator say repeatedly she will be on the presidential sidelines next year.
Didn't HRC promise she wouldn't run for the presidency during her first term in the senate when she was campaigning for the office she now holds?
In any case, I don't imagine all of this "will she or won't she run" speculation being sown by the Clintons will be much appreciated by the other Democratic candidates for the high office. She's sucking up a lot of their oxygen.
I'm still wondering about this, though.
