When March arrived, Hillary continued recuperating out of the public eye while the 2016 speculation continued to spread over the web and media.  Polls aboundedand Super PACs sprang up.     We knew she would be writing another book, and the topics to be covered aroused much curiousity, as well.

Meanwhile,  Hillary’s few actual outings in March were social events.  Early in the month she and Bill Clinton were spotted holding hands while strolling  in New York City.

The Clintons were rumored to have dined with the Obamas at an unspecified time and place.  That story was never verified.  The Clintons took in Holland Taylor’s Ann at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre,  meeting up with Meryl Streep, Gabby Giffords, and Mark Kelly in the process.

She was unable to attend the ten-year anniversary of Grace Bennett’s Inside Chappaqua magazine, but sent Grace her best wishes nonetheless.

On the 18th she released a video in support of marriage equality and made headlines.

March ended with the announcement of her first speaking engagement and of her transition office in Washington, D.C.

According to a New York Times article today,  Hillary Clinton has not only an office but also an initial paid speaking engagement lined up.  Jim Rutenberg reports that the recently retired Secretary of State will make her paid speaking debut on April 24 in Dallas. Her office, located on Connecticut Avenue in DC,  is dealing with,  as Rutenberg puts it “the considerable business of being Hillary Clinton.”

Operating with a small staff, the clear voice of the “transition office,” as it is being called, remains her longtime spokesman Philippe Reines.   Responding to rumors that insiders have leaked that she is running again in 2016,  Reines  stated,  “Everyone’s gotten way ahead of themselves, and most importantly, they have gotten way ahead of her.”

Rutenberg goes on to offer this.

Those who are most connected to her exhaustive network of political financiers — some of whom remained in her orbit with plum invitations to official diplomatic soirees — say its most important members will make no move until she gives the signal.

Yes, there are those insisting that they know she is running. Clearly, according to the above, these folks would not be among the “most important members” and “have gotten way ahead of her,” as Reines put it.

So what is Hillary Clinton doing now with this mysterious little office?

These days, Mrs. Clinton is devoting much of her time to her next book, about her years in the State Department. She is also debating how best to continue her work on women’s issues, which she could do either through her husband’s foundation or one she may start on her own.

It is no secret that many would love to see her make the run, but that is her decision to make, and she has not made it.  If anyone assures you that he or she knows for certain that her hat is in the ring, that person is talking through his or her hat!

Someone out there is impersonating Hillary Clinton on Twitter.   For about a week now some regulars here have mentioned and discussed in comment threads this mysteriously named  Twitter account which some of us began following just to keep an eye on it.

Hillary Clinton has many admirers all over the world.  It appears that a couple of thousand people following the account might actually believe these tweets are coming from Hillary.

I also looked at the associated “official” blog entitled Hillary Clinton Official Blog Posting Site of Hillary Clinton.  Some of the pages are straight off of Wikipedia, and there are five posts total all dated November 10, 2012.  Hmmmmm… so very unHillarylike.

1. Hillary knows her own bio and would not need to use wikipedia;

2. Ditto her service as FLOTUS and US Senator;

3. Most tellingly,  I do not think any loyal Hillary Clinton supporter can imagine a circumstance under which our girl, between two taxing trips to the Balkans and then to Australia and Asia, would arbitrarily just start a WordPress blog (no less – government employees must use government platforms – this ignorant individual seems not to know this) and then neglect it.  If she had started it and chose not to keep it up, certainly she would have deleted it.

Since she opened her new office website earlier this week, we know we have a legitimate place to go to contact Hillary.  It is reprehensible that someone is masquerading as Hillary in such a shabby way.   You can contact the real Hillary Clinton here, at her true website.

Well, the nets are abuzz, off course, about Hillary’s new website.  Speculation ranges from damn certain she is going to run in 2016 to pretty sure this means she is running.  Just about everyone agrees it is a beautiful picture of her, and if the website serves no other purpose than to be bookmarked and clicked on when you need a Hillary-fix, that’s fine,  too.

The Gazette announces that Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney will host a special dinner at her home to honor Hillary’s public service.

Congressmember Carolyn Maloney has announced that she will be holding a dinner at her home in honor of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton who ended her term on February 1. The event was announced at the United Community Civic Association’s (UCCA) Legislative/Executive Breakfast.

A little bird told me that the Clinton motorcade was spotted early this morning headed toward the Saw Mill River Parkway. Speculation was that the Clintons were headed to DC for John Kerry’s swearing-in.  Sure enough, Hillary is there.  The moment John Kerry finished his speech a few seconds ago, he bounded across the Benjamin Franklin Room to greet Hillary – very tiny and blonde, lost in the crowd, but I did catch a glimpse of her bright smile.

You all know that I eschew secondary sources, but lacking a primary source at the moment, in order to keep on bringing you Hillary news, I am forced to depend on secondary sources that are credible enough or ask salient questions.  Such posts will appear under the rubric above, and below are some interesting entries.

Hillary Clinton Just Quietly Disbanded Her Presidential Committee

By Adam Clark Estes | The Atlantic Wire

Don’t read too far into this, but Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign organization, Hillary Clinton for President, has finally paid its debts and closed its doors. Documents filed with the Federal Election Committee (FEC) on Monday confirm as much, and the transfer of the old organization’s leftover cash to a new organization, Friends of Hillary, make the transaction complete. At $102,797, the surplus funds are nothing to scoff at, but they’re certainly a long ways off from the billion or so dollars Hillary would need for a full fledged presidential campaign in 2016. But please, before we go any further, let us remind you once again: Don’t read too far into this. The fabled Hillary 2016 campaign is still a fable at this point and a fable without an ending at that.

Well, we already knew this, but it is a good question, and we cannot get enough of that picture!!!!

Hillary Clinton has launched a semi-mysterious new website now that she’s returned to life as a private citizen. The site, hillaryclintonoffice.com, contains nothing but a big picture of Clinton in front of a blue background and an expandable contact form allowing site visitors to reach out to Clinton for scheduling requests, media inquiries and whatever else they might want to speak to her about.
