As grumbling about Bill Clinton grows among Democratic leaders (and particularly among Hillary Clinton’s fellow Senators), the word I’m hearing is her operation is growing quite worried that the former President’s comments are becoming too big a story this week.
They are looking for some graceful way to tamp it down. Not so easy, where Bill is concerned, of course. There had been some thought given to having Hillary find a way to make fun of it somehow in her economic speech this morning, but that idea was discarded as going too off-message. Still, one source says to look for the campaign to find some way to “lighten this up.”
