WASHINGTON -- Yesterday, an unlikely rabble-rouser, speaking in an unlikely setting, fired the first verbal shot in an unlikely political movement:Free Hillary Clinton!The first lady, still reeling from the historic repudiation laid on her husband in last November's elections -- a disaster for the Democrats that many political analysts say she contributed to -- has been keeping a low profile this year.Instead of doing things like taking on the entire health care industry, Mrs. Clinton in public settings has adopted a more traditional first-lady-like role.

New grandmother and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to stay home in New York with daughter Chelsea today, skipping a planned high-dollar fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown.  Instead, former President Bill Clinton will headline the event in her place.  "I am very grateful to President Clinton for changing his schedule to travel to Maryland and attend our event this evening," Lt. Gov. Anthony G....

I expected nothing but effusive praise from major media for Hillary Clinton's new book, "Hard Choices," much like the mass exaltation they showered on Barack Obama, America's first African-American president. Initially that seemed where the reviews were headed. Prior to the book's official release June 10, the "journalists" on CBS "This Morning" spent nine minutes of barely restrained excitement promoting Ms. Clinton's book. Host Charlie Rose called it "a portrait of doggedness.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to host what might be the single biggest fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown tonight in Potomac. The former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate is headlining Brown's 5 p.m. event at a wooded 2.8-acre estate in the wealthy Washington suburb. Tickets cost $4,000 each - even more for VIP tickets, according to an event invitation. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall said as many as 500 people might attend and the campaign expects to raise more than $1 million - a sum greater than that garnered during a May fundraiser for Brown featuring former President Bill Clinton.

New York - - It's the tail end of a killer day and Hillary Clinton settles into the sofa on the 14th floor of the Intercontinental looking remarkably alert and limp free, drinking spring water straight out of a plastic bottle.The day broke with a sheaf of headlines declaring that the campaign was manufacturing a ''gentler, kinder'' Hillary. Family Circle featured a political bake-off between Hillary's and Barbara's chocolate chip cookie recipes.More than one story talked about the ''two sides'' of the candidate's wife: heads up she's a lawyer, heads down she's a wife.

For all sorts of legal reasons -- some silly, some profound -- Hillary Rodham Clinton's task force on health care reform will be able to continue working in deepest secrecy until the White House lifts its cover. That is the practical outcome of a court decision that found President Clinton "in direct violation" of existing law but allowed closed-door procedures to continue.The actual violation finds the First Lady in a kind of Catch-22 situation. Under the anti-nepotism statute forbiding presidents from appointing close relatives to federal posts (a measure passed to protest John Kennedy's selection of his brother Robert as attorney general)

Political wags are already suggesting that the best presidential debate of the campaign would pit Tipper Gore against Hillary Clinton. Tipper bakes cookies, according to current stereotyping, and Hillary does not. Tipper is the ultimate homemaker, Hillary the high-paid lawyer who spends her odd hours on big corporate boards. Tipper the prudish pecksniff, Hillary the liberated feminist.Both of these political wives are as immersed in the issues, as hopped up with intellectual firepower, as their husbands.

THE question I am constantly asked when I am on the road is, "Did Hillary really throw a lamp at Bill Clinton?"The reason for the curiosity is that stories keep leaking out of the White House that it was either A) a lamp, B) a book or C) a right to thejaw.When I was asked this question I used to honestly reply, "I wasn't there."This did not seem to satisfy the voracious appetite of most Americans. So recently I have taken a few liberties when the question is posed."It's quite possible," I say. "Hillary is furious that Bill holes up in the Oval Office while she spends her time in the kitchen toiling over a hot stove."

IF THERE is one subject that has Washington buzzing wit gossip, it is Hillary. Is it true that she and Bill can't stand the sight of one another? Alternatively, is it true that she is Bill's Svengali, calling all the shots from behind the scenes?Some conservatives are engaging in such arid speculation. Liberals, on the other hand, are at pains to present Hillary as something other than a liberal. "Hillary is completely unideological," the Washington Post quotes one of her staffers as saying.

Hillary Clinton's tactical retreat in her soft apology and meet-up with President Obama at Martha's Vineyard, after her ill-timed criticism of his "failure" in aiding Syrian refugees, indicates she may not be quite ready to put her best foot forward for the 2016 presidential race. Her remark in her interview with The Atlantic magazine, otherwise fulsome in praise of him, came at a time when Mr. Obama is struggling with a full plate of foreign policy woes. Inadvertently or not, it seemed politically self-serving, as she seems bent on shoring up her own acceptance with the more liberal elements in her own party.

I read with interest Jules Witcover's column about the Democrats' presidential prospects ("If not Hillary, how about Joe?" Aug. 4). He concluded that Vice President Joe Biden "is a good alternative presidential candidate for the Democrats" in 2016. Wrong! If history is a guide, the last person the Democrats should nominate if Ms. Clinton doesn't run is a sitting vice-president. While a number of vice-presidents have ascended to the presidency following a president's death, since 1800 only two sitting vice-presidents - Martin Van Buren in 1836 and George H.W. Bush in 1992 - have been elected president.

What if Hillary Clinton doesn't seek the presidency in 2016? Waiting patiently and noncommittally in the wings is Vice President Joe Biden. He might well be reluctant to take her on, considering the powerhouse she has become, with an army of Democratic women "Ready for Hillary" to unleash them. But almost certainly Mr. Biden would run if she didn't, and why not? Many, particularly Republicans relieved at not having to face her in the general election, would peddle their favorite impression: that Mr. Biden is a loose cannon who would run the country with his foot in his mouth.

After reading William L. Jacobsen Jr.'s commentary on Hillary Clinton, all that was left for me was to wonder just how shamelessly partisan and hypocritical your editorial policies must be for you to run such a sycophantic piece ( "President Hillary Clinton," July 30). Is The Sun's ideal customer really such a docile, uncritical liberal as the inclusion of this kind of adulatory treacle suggests? J. Christoph Amberger, Towson - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com . Please include your name and contact information.

Thank you to William L. Jacobsen Jr. for his commentary in The Baltimore Sun ( "President Hillary Clinton," July 31). As a woman reader of The Sun, I'm feeling as though this commentary is the first draft for one to be written on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. I'm also feeling that the same lingo about President Barack Obama will be a tagline for Ms. Clinton. If we didn't want Barack Obama to become president of the United States we are racist. If we don't want Hilary Clinton to be president of the United States we are misogynists.

Hillary Rodham Clinton - imagine if she runs and wins! In America, moms and dads of daughters will throw their arms around their girls' shoulders and say, "OK honey, now that the highest and seemingly most impervious glass ceiling is gone, in terms of your future, the sky's the limit!" Grandpas and grandmas will do the same with their granddaughters. Expect wide approval from American women of any age and enthusiastic response from women worldwide who will welcome the news that the charismatic, eloquent and tireless campaigner for women's welfare, rights and opportunities also is the new leader of the free world.

Boston. -- It was a miserable, gray, icy, winter morning in a city suffering from three major epidemics: The February blahs, the flu, and another rash of no-school days. Indeed, the Boston that greeted the head of the Task Force on Health Care Reform was a coldbed of Seasonal Affect Disorder.But Hillary Rodham Clinton came here on her appointed rounds for one of a series of trips billed as ''pulse-taking'' sessions. She is out taking the pulse of the public and clearly, the public is taking the pulse of this new sort of first lady.

For Hillary Rodham Clinton to describe herself as having been both "naive and dumb" in the way she handled the administration's failed health care reform plan is startling because such adjectives can hardly describe the most influential and possibly the smartest First Lady in the nation's history. As a result, one has to ask if she really means it and, more important, if it signals a change in the role she seeks to project to the country.After the issue that was supposed to define her husband's presidency crashed last fall -- a forerunner to the devastating Democratic defeat in the November elections -- Mrs. Clinton took on some of the blame.

I know it's disturbingly early to get into this, but here is my out-of-nowhere prediction for the 2016 presidential race: Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul. Ms. Clinton is an easy pick. She was on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart on Tuesday night looking relaxed, engaged and quick-witted. Mr. Stewart spent most of the time trying to box her into admitting she is running for president. Ms. Clinton made no announcement, of course, but she gave not a single signal that would suggest she will not be a candidate.

Hillary Clinton's quasi-presidential-campaign-but-actually-book-tour hit "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart Tuesday night and, as always with the scathing, satirical talk-show heavyweight, the interview did not disappoint. Jon spent a fair amount of time attempting to weasel his way into landing the much-coveted Clinton presidential announcement, and while the former secretary of state remained painstakingly coy on the matter, the host got pretty creative in his interrogative methods.
