Oh, I Forgot to Mention

Warren – Your comment yesterday that the Arafat-hugging Hillary is gone doesn’t scan for me. The key to understanding Hillary, I think, is ambition. The fact that she’s saying centrist things now is more a sign that she needs to be a centrist to achieve her goals. Contra Beinart and others, I just don’t see Hillary’s moves as anything more sincere than a sincere desire to position herself advantageously. That she sees a need to move right to move up the political ladder is a sign of the health of American politics, not of any powerful internal transformation on her part.
