Hillary’s roots give her away -- By Wesley Pruden, The Washington Times

(Getty Images)Will she or won't she? Not even her hairdresser, who is only called in occasionally, knows for sure. But the lady knows how to keep everyone guessing. Only her roots are showing.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are the longest-running soap opera in American politics, and as Bill continues a slow fade into the woodwork, Hillary emerges as the sound and light show illuminating the lives of the Washington political class. She's the favorite story line of the chattering class, too. Nobody prods and pokes these classes, teasing with hints, intimations and insinuations, better than she does.

Hillary told an ABC News interviewer in January that she had "no plans or intentions" to run for president in 2016, the standard argle-bargle from everyone the Great Mentioner christens as a presidential prospect. "I'm going to be focusing on my philanthropies, my charities, my writing and speaking. So I'm looking forward to having something resembling a kind of a normal life again."

She didn't identify her "philanthropies and charities," but we can be sure that most of them focus on Bill and Hillary. She once donated Bill's underwear to charity and took deductions measured in pennies on their income-tax returns, and why not? Bubba's drawers were hardly ever worn, after all, and why should the Clintons not get every break on their income tax that anyone and everyone else gets?

Talk like this terrifies the political and chattering classes in Washington. Politico, which is something like the Old Farmer's Almanac for the chattering class, rushed into print the other day with reassurances, both for itself and for the others in the press pool. "The notion that Hillary Clinton was embracing anything like a sedate life — or taking more than a momentary pause from increasingly obvious preparations for a presidential run — turned out to be, in the phrase that Bill Clinton once turned on Barack Obama, a fairy tale."
