As Clinton answers questions, I wonder if this is what she's thinking...

I wonder if she's going to start giving press conferences on a regular basis, accomplishing a few ends:

1) Getting some much needed airtime

2) Hitting Trump, possibly provoking a reaction?

3) Forcing Trump to follow suit and become more accessible himself, and also increasing the odds that Trump will say something outrageously stupid. (The more he talks, the more likely his big-ass mouth makes news)

1. People that have been bashing her over lack of access, have no idea. This was planned.

 

Too much Hillary too soon, and people get complacent. In the next two months we will be seeing, and hearing a lot more from her.

3. This is what I think. Don't give the people too much at once.

But when you do give them Hillary, give it all you've got.

4. It was a plan to get the press all worked up about "not having press conferences"...

and then having a flying political advertisement that the networks have no choice but to put on air.

Seems to be working!!! She played the media perfectly.

5. Notice how Trump answered questions

on his plane too? Everything she does that he likes, he copies. At the same time, every evil and criminal thought he has he projects onto her.

6. Add 4) smashes meme that she is unapproachable and secretive

If there is any one consistent negative for HRC is that she is seen as secretive and unwilling to answer questions. What is sad is that she is extremely well spoken.

7. The sad thing is that the perception is not the reality, but taken as such...

I would probably be so tired of all the nonsense that I would want to limit my time with the media until necessary, but then they would complain about how I am secretive and unapproachable, then I would want to not engage in their collective stupidity, and they would continue to harp on my secretive nature.

Hillary cannot win sometimes so she really has to pick her battles so that they will to the most good in the best way. If she is out too much too early, then she is an attention seeker just trying to hog the spotlight. If she is not "accessible enough" then we have what we have been seeing. She has to be strategic, but in being strategic, she is written about as being "secretive".

9. She is more introverted than most US politicians including her husband

(I am not criticizing her here, the same could be said of most of my favorite statesmen/politicians) In her case, there are things she has done because she really does not want the transparency that insures good government practices. Anything she can do to signal that though this has often been observed in the past, she will NOT do so as President. (One good step is to say that any rules that Obama has changed in the State Department and elsewhere will be kept when she is President. )
