I took this photo in January 1995, at a Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington. I happened to have my camera with me then, though a year earlier when I met Mrs. Clinton for the first time, I didn’t have my camera with me. What can you tell from a one-minute encounter? She exudes positive energy and gravitas.
This is not a premature endorsement for Hillary to run for president. While she’s clearly a smart and capable person, it’s not yet clear whether she has the vision or the political positions in alignment with the heart and soul of the Democratic Party, or that would be best for the country.
