Look Out Ahead! Clinton Interviews Coming Up!

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton are talking to the media, but before everyone jumps to 2016 conclusions,  let's understand that we are likely to be seeing Clintons on the horizon with some frequency over the upcoming week as they host heavy hitters from all over the globe at the 2013 Clinton Global InitiativeLive feeds will be streamed here.

This will be the first year that Hillary will be able to participate fully since accepting the post of Secretary of State.   Over the past four years she did make time to address participants but was otherwise occupied during the week representing all of us at the U.N. General Assembly.  She will not be subject to that obligation this year,  and we can all be assured that both her husband and her daughter will be thrilled to have her aboard for the long run this time around.


For starters, we can look forward, on Sunday, to seeing former President Clinton (and informal Obama Administration "Secretary of Explaining Stuff") with Fareed Zakaria on CNN's GPS discussing the  Syrian weapons deal.  Most assuredly he will be granting other interviews in the course of the week likely on morning and evening news broadcasts.

Meanwhile,  Hillary's first interview with the print media since leaving the State Department will be available when New York Magazine hits the stands on Monday coinciding with the opening of CGI according to Politico.

After an eight-month hiatus, Hillary Clinton is talking to the media again.
Earlier this month, the former Secretary of State and likely 2016 presidential candidate sat down with New York Magazine's Joe Hagan for her first major interview since leaving the State Department on Feb. 1, POLITICO has learned.

The interview is expected to be published in print and online on Monday, the first day of the annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York. All three Clintons -- Hillary, former President Bill, and daughter Chelsea -- are featured speakers at the event.

A Clinton spokesperson declined to comment on the interview; Hagan did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

We know that Mme. Secretary has been working assiduously out of camera range getting her own initiative, Too Small to Fail, organized and off the ground.  A joint effort between the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and Next Generation Too Small to Fail is dedicated to the health and well being of children aged 0-5.   Yesterday, the foundation announced the formation of leadership and advisory councils for the initiative, and we can be sure that Hillary and her team will be diving into their projects over the coming week.

Even when she is not in front of the camera lenses,  our Hillary seems to be in the news and on our screens with great regularity due to all the 2016 speculation, but it will be wonderful to see her addressing and explaining her new endeavors.  She, as we all know, is an excellent "explainer" herself!
