Hillary Clinton's Talk Show

Conservatives, Republicans and Barack Obama may not want to hear this, but Hillary Clinton has hit her stride with “The Hillary Clinton Talk Show.” Rather than talking down to people from the stage with a set speech and allowing no opportunity to take questions, she now visits with people on their level in restaurants, homes and other places. By demonstrating personal warmth and the ability to engage people in questions and answers, she has humanized her brilliant intellect and extensive knowledge of the issues. No longer does she appear cold and calculating, the charge critics have leveled against her throughout her career. Whether purposefully or accidentally, she first showcased “The Hillary Clinton Talk Show” during the closing hours of her come-from-behind victory in New Hampshire. With her back to the wall, facing a double-digit loss, she proved the old axiom that necessity is the mother of invention.
