Hillary’s day began early with a televised town hall in Hollis, NH.  Savannah Guthrie moderated and also interviewed Hillary. Willie Geist assisted. Some of the questions were submitted online and subjects included favorites: drink, book, etc., financing education,  gun control, and of course the moderator brought up the private server, emails, and Benghazi.  You can access the video clips at the Today Show site.

Sometimes the less said the better. The Today Show event probably went as most of us expected and hoped it would not.  Moderators set a tone, and the tone was tense. It was not only the questions from Guthrie that irritated.  Geist was prodding from the sidelines.  He succeeded in getting an audience member to ask Hillary to contrast her plan for the economy with that of Bernie Sanders.  Hillary refused that question and said she preferred to wait until the debate to mark contrasts between her plans and those of other Democrats in the race.  There was no denying a contentious atmosphere to the televised event.

Generally we look forward to these broadcasts and want to watch them more than once.  In the case of this much publicized town hall, I, for one, was relieved to see it end. In the final analysis, Hillary handled everything with her classic grace, intelligence, patience, and, as needed, reserve.

No matter how the people at the Today Show act, there are some in the media who send their love and support in unexpected ways.  I was happy last night that Showtime finally brought back Homeland and The Affair.   I was even happier when this little guy came running down the Brooklyn street to his dad.  Trevor Solloway is the younger son of one of the main characters in The Affair, Noah Solloway.  Here is how he looked in last night’s season opener.

Hillary was all over the airwaves this weekend between her SNL appearance last night and her in depth interview with Reverend Al Sharpton on Politics Nation this morning.  It might have escaped the attention of some that she is holding a town hall in New Hampshire tomorrow morning.  The event will be carried by NBC on The Today Show and Savannah Guthrie will moderate.  Guthrie will also conduct an interview with Hillary.

In the wake of Rev. Al’s excellent Sunday morning debut, we hope Guthrie also chooses the high road and sticks to substantive questions and relevant issues.  Al Sharpton demonstrated that it is possible to conduct an informative interview without ever using the words “email,” “server,” or “trustworthy.”  As a result,  his interview with candidate Hillary Clinton rises head and shoulders above all that have aired so far this cycle for the depth of his question preparation and high professional standards.

It was beyond refreshing to see Hillary approached as a serious contender with something to offer.  We hope Guthrie’s coverage of tomorrow’s event meets and maintains that high standard.

While some of us were watching Margaret Thatcher’s funeral this morning, from which the Clintons, the Bushes, and the Obamas were all notably absent, on another channel President Obama was talking to Savannah Guthrie about his former secretary of state.   Proving that he has mastered the fancy footwork involved in dancing around Hillary Clinton 2016 speculation,  Obama accomplished a creditable sidestep on the Today Show as HuffPo reports.

Obama Misses Hillary Clinton, But Says ‘She’s Earned Her Rest’ (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted: 04/17/2013 10:34 am EDTPresident Barack Obama couldn’t avoid questions about Hillary Clinton potentially running for president in 2016 during a recent interview on NBC’s “Today” show.

Speaking with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie in an interview recorded last week and aired Wednesday morning, Obama steered clear of assuming anything about Clinton’s White House plans. But he also appeared happy to praise his former secretary of state, who departed the administration earlier this year.

“Do you miss her around here?” Guthrie asked.

“I do,” Obama responded. “She’s earned her rest and I know that she’s going to be able — whatever she does — to continue to be a leader and an incredibly positive force for the causes I care about and that she cares about all around the world.”
