Won't Somebody PLEASE Think of the Horse Race Narrative?

HEADLINE: Hillary’s No Slam Dunk in 2016: Why she’s more vulnerable than everyone thinks. Article's lede: Could Hillary Clinton be the next Richard Nixon?
Top advisers and former aides to Barack Obama say Hillary Clinton is repeating the mistakes she made in 2008, building a machine in lieu of a message and lumbering toward the Democratic nomination with the same deep vulnerabilities that cost her the nomination eight years earlier.
National Journal:
Don't assume that she runs for president. The deeper you dive into her inner circle and talk to friends who are not financially and professionally invested in a 2016 campaign, the more likely you'll find people encouraging her not to run—or at least to avoid getting stampeded.
The punditocraps sure seem desperate. As phony moderate Chris Christie collapses, do they contemplate the looming rigors of maintaining their cherished false equivalencies should the accomplished epochal Hillary Clinton run against which ever bloodied killer clown the white racist science denying forced pregnancy gun nut death-cult GOP base pluck from the killer clown car after another killer clown primary reality show?
