1. Though the New Yorker is sometimes prone to gossip and innuendo, the story itself is interesting...

2. Jeez, that's a strong response

The story is factual. Whether their interpretation of the facts is correct remains to be seen. But here's a simple fact that needs no interpretation: Hillary has never, ever said she isn't running. And until she says it -- and really, what could be simpler -- assuming "she's running" is perfectly reasonable.

3. Exactly what specifically in this long and varied article are you calling

bullsh*t?

Writing 6 words in response to a detailed article that covers various topics is sort of like, well, kicking the cat because you're pissed about something, which probably has nothing to do with the cat.
Let's have an analysis and explanation: I'm willing to consider, but not to react to an outburst that contains no content.

David Remick, whether you agree with his point of view or not, took a long time to write a longish article about the things he observed at a meeting. You are calling his observations in general bullsh*t. Please proceed, governor.

4. Doesn't

Hil have friends at the New Yorker?

I still think this is a way for her friends/supporters to say "see the media loves you and your numbers say you will win! Run one more time!"
