The Anti-Hillary Campaign Is Up and Running Hillary Clinton hasn't announced her presidential candidacy, but her every move is being analyzed as if she had. This week, after she charmed 5000 professional women with talk of breaking the "glass ceiling," comment on her own status as part of the 1% was inevitable.
