Never really thought about this until just now - if you see a headline that says something like "Clinton Calls For..." or "so and so Meets With Clinton", do you immediately think Bill or Hillary? Sometimes context is a clue, but just now I was reading news and saw the headline "Clinton calls for a peaceful transition to democracy in Egypt" and my immediate thought was Bill was off playing diplomat ala Carter.
This also leads me to wonder - does Hillary get as much press notice as Condi or Colin Powell ever did? It seems Pelosi got far more attention that Hillary, even now she still does. Is it by design and coming out of the long standing split between the Clinton Dems and the Obama Dems? Just a fluke? Or is she intentionally keeping a low profile to avoid association with all the policy decisions of this term?
I think it may be a good play on her part or a play on the Obama teams part to not make her a threat in the next election. I know this is not a popular belief, but I think our country would have been better off with Hillary. She is one smart country and while she is not everything a republican may want after being in the first lady spot for 8 years she was better equipped to find middle ground.
I guess it all depends on what the subject is, but I find that I am wrong sometimes when I end up guessing. I first think Hillary when it comes to official business, but in supportive roles I figure it is Bill. I think she will keep her distance from the decision making so that she can keep her distance from the consequences as well.
