So far Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been relatively gaffe-free, and while it’s possible that she simply became a better campaigner since last summer’s book tour, the more likely answer is that she hasn’t said anything to the press. Since launching her campaign in April, Clinton has barely taken any questions from the media, forcing reporters assigned to the Hillary beat to dig in on Emailgate and overanalyze her trip to Chipotle. But no more: Jennifer Palmieri, the campaign’s communications director, revealed on Sunday that Clinton will begin doing national TV interviews and generally make herself more available to the press — in other words, things expected of a person who would like to be president of the United States. “She’s all on board,” Palmieri told Fox News’ Howard Kurtz. “America will see more of her.” In other news, Chris Christie is kicking himself because he just realized that dodging every question was an option.
