Senatorial Static

So the etiquette inside Hillaryland is not to discuss 2008 until sometime in January. But what about people, like Rep. Joe Crowley, who seem eager to announce her candidacy: any complaints from Hillary Clinton’s people?

That’s basically what New York magazine’s Chris Smith asked Crowley:

Recently the Post ran a front-page story where you essentially announced Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for president. Get any static from the senator’s staff?

No. When Hillary called to talk about her thinking for 2008, I wasn’t instructed by anyone not to speak about it. The Post asked my personal opinion, and my sense is she’s gonna run. I would have been lying if I’d said anything else. I think she’d make a great president.
