Nothing Hillary Clinton Says This Week Matters

For the love of God, can everyone please stop chattering about whether Hillary Clinton’s latest minuscule miscue is going to be a huge problem for her if she runs for president? Is there truly nothing else to write about?

The correct answer is: no, it will not be a problem. You know why? Because it’s June 2014. The election is scheduled for November 2016. That’s it.

Now can we all move on? I think I’ve only read about 20 explainers today on the path forward for the US at the World Cup. That’s probably not enough, so how about writing a couple dozen more?

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
