Hillary Clinton's holdout: Will she ever host a press conference again? The Hill Joe Concha 4 days ago In a solemn ceremony, today marks 250 days since Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last held a formal press conference. Context is everything, so let's see what can occur in the span of 250 days: Two NFL seasons could be played plus two Super Bowls. Fly to the moon and back 42 times. Walking across Russia end-to-end. Finish the first 36 weeks of pregnancy. Complete all voting in the presidential primary season, plus both party conventions. You get the idea. But here's the question: With Hillary Clinton up 7.7 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls with less than three months until Election Day, is the blatant lack of transparency even hurting her in any capacity? Clinton advocates and the campaign itself have argued that the candidate does plenty of interviews and is open with the press. Yup, when one runs for president, one does tend do some Q&As here and there. Know this: Now that Clinton has a comfortable lead, any interviews she does grant -- especially when juxtaposed with Donald Trump -- will be periodic at best. As we've seen, those few who are granted interviews will be very carefully hand-picked. And if you think that list will include Chris Wallace of Fox News, the Sunday political show host who walked Clinton into "short-circuiting" (her words) on an answer around the honesty FBI Director James Comey never said she displayed around explanations of the handling of her State Department emails, you'll need to wait another five years before she even thinks of sitting down with Wallace again. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opini...ever-host-a-press-conference-again/ar-BBvw5GN ________________________________________________________________________________ I mean I can't imagine why Clinton actually polls worse then Trump on trustworthiness. If she has nothing to hide, then why not hold a press conference....Is it maybe because her E-mail lies are so ridiculous that even the most blind Clinton supporter would have to re-evaluate their position, if reporters were actually allowed to ask her questions about it? Will update daily with new days count.
