Avoiding bad optics: #BenghaziHillary starts presidential run with 3:30 pm EST tweet instead facing real people, Not a good start for #ScaredHillary

There are some things that should be done in a conventional way, like making a presidential run in front of cheering crowds. But, Hillary Clinton couldn’t draw flies when she tried to sell her last book. So I suspect she’s dong the social media thing to avoid bad optics.

NY Post reports Hillary Clinton finally ended speculation Sunday about the nation’s worst-kept secret: she’s running for the White House.

“I’m running for president. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. –H” she tweeted around 3:30 p.m.

Top Clinton aide and campaign manager John Podesta, in an e-mail to veterans of Clinton’s 2008 campaign, donors and fundraisers, minutes earlier sent an e-mail blast with the words that supporters, detractors and political pundits had been waiting for: “It’s official: Hillary’s running for president.”

The e-mail was distributed moments before her official campaign Web site, HillaryClinton.com, went live with her announcement.

“So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote because it’s your time,” the second-time candidate said.” And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.”
