Here And There with Dave Marash

Covering Hillary Clinton, on the Presidential campaign trail for more than a year now, AP National Political Reporter Lisa Lerer, has a problem: the candidate won’t talk to her.  It’s not personal, she just doesn’t bother with print reporters.  The guy from the Washington Post has been frozen out for 13 months!  But don’t worry, there’s still plenty to report just from public events. And Lisa has the benefit of living institutional memory from her AP colleague Beth Harpaz, whose recently-re-published classic book The Girls in the Van, is about covering Hillary Clinton’s first Senate Campaign 16 years ago.  One judgment both reporters share is that the word for Hillary is “unknowable.”
