HILLARY’S PARTISANSHIP is back in 140 character blasts and it’s beautiful. Live on Twitter, with Republicans the target of her tweets.

Let’s face it, running against Congress is so easy. Americans give the bumbling lawmakers inside the dome low approvals, which they’ve earned.

The next trip wire for Republicans was triggered by Speaker John Boehner using the latest email brouhaha as an excuse to bring up Benghazi, attempting to wrap everything into a BENGHAZI, BENGHAZI, BENGHAZI scandal bow.

It’s a huge error, because even though some aren’t satisfied with Clinton’s email press conference, tying it to the ongoing Benghazi obsession would send a message that Republicans cannot afford. That everything is partisan, which turns people off faster than watching cable talking heads debate the latest spin.

Hillary is counting on Republicans being predictable, which they usually are on the issues.

Foreshadowing her coming presidential campaign in almost daily tweets sends a message and a signal. She’s got a social media savvy staff that understands what she’ll face in the advanced social media era she’ll face.

Hillary Clinton has no intention of letting the media define her or speak for her. It’s clear she’s going to go around them every chance she gets.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, get one. You won’t want to miss the fun.
