It's striking to think about it, but today is just Day 9 of Hillary Clinton's official presidential candidacy. And predictably, the 2016 conversation has been all about her. Well, almost. Reporters today begin covering her every move (that we know about it) in another early presidential-nominating state—this time New Hampshire.
Over the weekend, at their own cattle call in the Granite State, the Republican presidential candidates aimed their rhetorical fire at her. And there's a new anti-Clinton book, set to hit the bookstores in next month, that's generating plenty buzz.
