Hillary Clinton’s March Speech Raises Timing Questions

Hillary Clinton is scheduled to deliver a paid speech in March 2015, a point on the calendar that raises questions about when she will announce her decision on running for president and whether she intends to leave the Democratic Party uncertain of her plans until next spring, says WSJ.

The American Camp Association, New York and New Jersey said Monday that Clinton will address its conference in Atlantic City on March 1.

In the 2008 presidential race, she announced her candidacy in January 2007.

Some Democrats say that that Mrs. Clinton has effectively frozen the field – that potential candidates can’t raise money or actively begin running until they know whether she’s in the race. Were she to bow out, that could leave some lesser-known prospective Democratic candidates at a disadvantage, forcing them to mount a campaign at a comparatively late date in the calendar, says WSJ.
