[Mrs. Clinton] claims she’s ready to lead on Day One. But what about Day Two if Day One doesn’t go well? She’ll need to turn to her kitchen cabinet, not everything and the kitchen sink. Because facing the unknown is the only truly inevitable event any politician can bank on Amy Holmes, Anderson Cooper 360, […]

Chris Cillizza at the WaPo Politics Blog: Pennsylvania Gov.
