After a difficult summer slog, Hillary Clinton appears to be back on top.
The week began with Bernie Sanders, her chief Democratic rival, getting devastatingly lampooned on Saturday Night Live, the stage where Hillary Clinton had scored points just a few weeks earlier by gamely mocking herself. Then, the spectre of Joe Biden haunting Clinton’s campaign disappeared, when the grieving vice president announced he would not compete in 2016.
And on Thursday, sitting in the hot seat for a marathon 11-hour hearing, Clinton delivered a win by remaining calm and mostly unflappable as her Republican interlocutors on the House Benghazi committee became heated. “She looked big — or at least bigger — than her opponents,” said one close Clinton ally following the hearings Thursday.
