This latest reinvention of Clinton, as Lerer and Epstein note, requires her to shift away from her 2008 strategy of being “an experienced Iron Lady, ready to take that 3 a.m. phone call” and focus on identity politics.
“People around her were saying don’t play up being a woman, it could be a vulnerability,” Clinton’s 2008 senior adviser Maria Cardona told Bloomberg. “She’s running in a different time, and because she’s running in a different time she’s embracing these issues differently.”
It seems to be a theme with politicians. Hmmmmm.
