Peter D. Rosenstein

Attacks must hurt Hillary personally when her record in public life has never been shown to be anything but honest. She has made a career of speaking out for those who can't speak out for themselves and fighting for equality and the civil and human rights of those who have been oppressed.

Hillary Clinton: Getting Started

Her unconventional announcement video indicates that this time will be different. But with about 18 months to go before the 2016 elections, a loaded field of Republican candidates attacking her, and record amounts of campaign money being spent, this campaign will no doubt be most unconventional. And it is only just getting started!

None of this stuff -- irritating as each item may be with regard to how the Clintons do things -- is actually important enough to threaten her candidacy. There is nothing, so far at least, that makes for a compelling, specific storyline.

Somehow all the sturm and drang created by each new "accusation and bombshell" her opponents dream up, and the press jumps to report, ends the same; Hillary is never shown to have done anything wrong. She comes out of these made for TV crisis looking like what she is; a brilliant woman and good politician who gets things done.

The New Georgia Project, the NAACP and other organizations began this election year with a simple goal: expand the voices of our democracy by reaching out to those who too often go unheard.

Perhaps when the next election rolls around Secretary Hargett will hand out temporary tattoos, the kind little kids like. That way, even voters' children could become his own walking billboards. Given what I've seen this year, I wouldn't be surprised.

From time to time we have pre-conceived notions about people. As much as we try not to, we do.
