One other note from Steve Rattner’s stop by Morning Joe this morning:
When co-host Mika Brzezinski played a clip of Hillary Clinton saying she’s done with elected office, Mark Halperin shook his head and said she’s definitely running unless something changes.
And Rattner–who along with his wife, Maureen White, was one of Clinton’s most ardent backers in 2008–wholeheartedly agreed.
“I think Mark’s exactly right,” Rattner said. “Look, the idea of 2012 was ridiculous. There was no way, as a sitting member of the president’s cabinet, she was going to turn and run against him. It’s not her nature. It wouldn’t have worked.”
“But 2016 is a whole different event. And she’s incredibly well-positioned for that.”
