The Wonder Woman of the Invisible Primary

Hillary Clinton hit an Invisible Primary trifecta with three big and oddly contradictory stories dropping somewhat simultaneously: First, a Super PAC called "Ready for Hillary" registered with the FEC on Friday; second, a recent WaPo-ABC News poll was released that showed the soon-to-be-former Secretary of State's heightened popularity; and third, that despite all of this, she is "not inclined" to run for president.

Well, I believe her. In an online Q&A with international students hosted by the Newseum, Clinton also said that she was going to take time to write her memoir, and that particular activity so rarely leads to a presidential bid.

In other Invisible Primary news of the day, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is sticking his neck out on the issue of immigration (you can watch him on Hannity here), Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) penned a WaPo op-ed piece about Medicaid, and my Facebook-savvy students tell me that baziollionaire Mark Zukerberg is hosting a fundraiser for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

I still want to know where Joe Biden is. If you spot him doing something particularly Invisible Primaryish, please post something for me?

  1. Joe Biden is doing something INCREDIBLY in "Invisible Primaryish". He's doing his job, and letting OTHERS make whatever mistakes they choose to make - including letting people mobilize the "Anybody But Hillary for President" crowd (of which I was and remain a part) without coming anywhere near that mobilization in any visible way.
