BREAKING!!!! Apparently, Hillary Clinton is not terribly accessible to the press! Howie Kurtz has the details.

National correspondents are increasingly frustrated by a lack of access to Clinton. They spend much of their time in rental cars chasing her from one event to the next, because the campaign usually provides no press bus or van. Life on the bus means journalists don’t have to worry about luggage or directions or getting left behind, since they are part of the official motorcade. News organizations foot the bill for such transportation, but campaigns have to staff and coordinate the buses — and deal with the constant presence of their chroniclers.
