Wow! How did I miss this one? I didn’t know she was scheduled to be on and would certainly have been there given the fury she expressed in her book regarding Lauer’s “moderation” of the Commander-in-Chief Forum.

I do not normally watch this show anymore since I didn’t like how they ganged up on Ann Curry. If, like me, you missed this appearance, here it is.

Yesterday, when Hillary took a subway ride from Yankee Stadium to a cafe in the Bronx, her interview date was with the Today Show‘s Matt Lauer.  The interview aired this morning.

Hillary reiterated that she has always from the outset looked at her campaign as a battle to be fought and is taking nothing for granted but is feeling good about New York and will continue to campaign hard in upcoming states.

She repeated her prior remarks on Bernie Sanders saying his NYDN interview exhibited a lack of preparation but insisted, correctly, that she never said he lacked qualifications. She added that when he said she was unqualified he suffered from historic amnesia on the issues upon which they cast the same vote.

As to the great Republican hope that she will be indicted based on email issues, she said, “That is not gonna happen.  There is not the remotest chance that is gonna happen.  They have said things about me for 25 years.”  She said this is a routine security investigation that goes on all the time but you do not hear about them.  This one, she said, we hear about because it is about her.

The full interview is available here on the Today Show website.

Later, Today hosted Bernie Sanders at an abbreviated outdoor town hall.

Heads up!  This afternoon, Hillary will appear on the Steve Harvey Show.  I believe this is a re-run, but just in case you missed it the first time around.

Hillary was up before the crack of dawn in Iowa and hit the airwaves running.  We caught her first on the Today Show where the Lauer/Guthrie team spoke with her.

The questions were the predictable ones, and Hillary is used to fielding those.  She reiterated for the umpteenth time that the email dustup is the same old interagency disagreement over classification but came down a little harder than usual on what the campaign is now designating as leaks from the IG to the GOP.

As for her campaign, she was very upbeat and optimistic with high praise for her Iowa team.  She was confident that her focus on the concerns she has heard from Iowans will prove effective tonight.

We caught her next on CNN’s New Day with Alisyn Camerota.  This was a longer, more extensive, and cordial conversation.  The topics were similar, but the tone was more relaxed.

On CNN, given more time to expand, Hillary emphasized her experience in the White House and Senate and consistently highlighted the accomplishments of the Obama years.  She underscored her ability to be the candidate who will protect and continue the progress of the past eight years.  She also cited her tenure as Secretary of State providing her with a depth of experience no other candidate can claim. At every turn she deflected attention from the GOP attacks and refocused on the issues and concerns of the voters on the trail and her plans to address those.  That is what this election is about.

The Hillary we know finished her CNN interview by telling Alisyn, who was fighting a cold, to feel better.  The Hillary we know cares.  She cares about the individuals she meets and she cares about the community.

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.
