Hillary Does Maintenance

The latest storyline about Hillary Clinton is that she is laying low while potential super-rival Barack Obama takes advantage of her absence by making profile-boosting appearances around the country.

While Hillary certainly has dropped off the public radar since her landside reelection victory (it’s been two weeks since her most recent public appearance), she isn’t exactly napping. Instead, she is using the sleepy holiday season to perform some necessary maintenance work on the 08′ machinery.

According to a well-placed source, Clinton will be holding a “thank you” brunch and dinner for donors within the next couple of weeks.

In addition, she has personally invited at least one donor to a private dinner.

Obama may be “everywhere,” as the Post wrote, but Clinton hasn’t vanished.
