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.
