While it appears to all observers (including myself) that I am losing my bet that she won't run, won't win the nomination if she does run and won't win the Presidency if she does run, today a couple of articles today seem to show the tides may be turning:http://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2014/08/19/hillary-clinton-summer-slide/2pc6mTziecszWDGeZ34jUL/story.html
Hillary Clinton's SUmmer Slide, Hillary is inevitable no longer

Hillary Clinton Not Campaigning Much for her Party in 2014
By Michael Barone - August 19, 2014http://washingtonexaminer.com/hillary-clinton-not-campaigning-much-for-her-party-in-2014-unlike-richard-nixon-in-1966/article/2552070
Just about everyone noticed Hillary Clinton's scathing comments on President Obama's foreign policy in her interview with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg. But almost no one has noticed where Clinton hasn't been seen. That's on the campaign trail or at fundraisers for Democrats running for the Senate.
Why isn't she out campaigning for Democrats?
a) This is going to be a lousy year for Dems.
b) The candidates don't want her there.
c) She isn't very good at campaigning.
d) She doesn't like doing it.
e) She doesn't want to face the difficult questions that come with being out there:
Barone: "That might force her to weigh in on Obamacare, illegal border crossings and fracking."
In other words, maybe she isn't running after all. )
