A Kindler, Gentler Hillary

This article is more than 11 years old.

Dean Spiliotes, who writes the blog, ponders the efficiency of the Clinton campaign's repackaging itself in response to Barack Obama's surge in the polls.

Writes Spiliotes:

The campaign has begun to show its candidate in a much more personal light, with a new emphasis on her family and friends, and with a set of personal stories to help Hillary Clinton make her own emotional connection with voters. Whether this strategy will work quickly enough to reposition Clinton for Iowa and New Hampshire remains to be seen, but one has to be impressed by the speed with which the Clinton campaign pivoted to address the most serious threat to her nomination yet.
