Hillary’s Debate, Early States


In this week’s paper, Jason Horowitz follows Jonathan Tasini, and hears from NY1 why there probably won’t be a debate between Tasini and Hillary Clinton.

“We haven’t proposed a debate. We haven’t prevented him from doing anything–Hillary Clinton will not do one,” said Steve Paulus, the general manager of NY1 News. “The bottom line is that we are not the ones preventing him from debating–that’s the incumbent.”

And Steve Kornacki plays the expectation game with Hillary and thinks she can be the Democratic nominee without winning the early primaries or caucuses in 2008.

“After all, if Hillary can lower the bar enough in the early states, she could be in position to declare victory without actually winning.”
