Hillary Clinton: The inevitable is upon us
Over the past many months we were forced to endure ridiculous speculation about whether Hillary Clinton would run in 2016. It was never a real question. The answer was always obvious, but talk about it people did because that's how the game is played.
You will therefore be unsurprised to learn that Ms. Clinton continues to put the pieces in place:
The lease is signed: Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters will work out of 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn Heights, according to a source familiar with the deal.
The campaign will occupy two full floors of the office building, which is close to 12 subways lines and a dozen bus lines, and will be taking them as is – no buildout. On its website, the building markets it as "Modern Offices. Brooklyn Cool."
The clock on Clinton's announcement is now officially ticking. FEC rules state that you have 15 days between conducting campaign activities and filing a campaign committee.
There you have it. Please try to conceal your shock.
