Hillary presidential positioning

Yes, she will run and yes, she is trying to redo her image to make herself more palatable to Christians:

Peggy Noonan reports in  Wall Street’s Opinion Journal (2/24/2005):

Hillary. Forget her prepared speeches, put aside her moderate statements on Iraq and abortion. This is how you know she’s running for president in 2008. Ten days ago a reporter interviewed her in the halls of the Senate (another kind of cloister) and asked if she planned to run for president. She did not say, "I’m too busy serving the people of New York to think about the future." She did not say, "Oh, I already have a heckuva lot on my plate." She said, "I have more than I can say grace over right now."

I have more than I can say grace over right now. What a wonderfully premeditated ad lib for the Age of Red State Dominance. I suggested a few weeks ago that Mrs. Clinton was about to get very, very religious. But her words came across as pious and smarmy, like Tammy Faye with a law degree. Maybe she still thinks in stereotypes; maybe she thinks that’s what little Christian ladies talk like while they stay home baking cookies. Whatever, it was almost as good as her saying, "I’m running, is this not obvious to even the slowest of you?"
