The rules are different for Mrs. Clinton. No nonincumbent in the history of contemporary U.S. presidential politics ever looked so formidable three years before an election.
Ask almost any Democrat and the automatic assumption is that Mrs. Clinton will be the party’s 2016 nominee; a top West Virginia Democrat says she would carry that state, which President Barack Obama lost, 62 percent to 35 percent, in 2012. Ask most Republicans who has the best shot to be the 45th president, and they will acknowledge it is Mrs. Clinton. (NY Times)
