With news that Hillary Clinton is announcing on Sunday, April 12, she is throwing her hat in the presidential ring, Megan Kelly asked, why would she possibly choose a Sunday, and this Sunday, no less, to announce?
Well, as it happens, Sunday, April 12, is the 70th anniversary of the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and, Hillary's guiding light is the Hyde Park Roosevelts. Her mission will be to reprise the skill that FDR brought to the presidency and the heart that First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt brought to the problems of the nation. She was exemplary.
Hillary has become a New Yorker and, my sense is, like Republicans who emulate Ronald Reagan, she will emulate the Roosevelts. It would be a smart strategy.
