Mainstream and liberal reporters cannot get their heads around what should be a simple concept: Why is Hillary Clinton running for president? What’s the message?

No one seems able to answer, beyond the fact that she wants to be president.

Morning Joe‘s Mika Brzezinski has tried to find out, even from Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.), a potential running mate for Clinton, but all he could offer was that she’s the most “experienced.”

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said he “hadn’t heard it from Hillary yet,” and USA Today‘s Susan Page said Clinton had to explain “why she’s running” and “what’s her vision.”

Even her own supporters cannot articulate what Clinton’s message is beyond some convoluted talk about her fight for women’s rights, while they curiously omit the fact that the Clinton Foundation has accepted donations from Middle East nations who treat females horrendously.

“Ready for Hillary” advisor Tracy Sefl bungled the question on MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner Friday, simply saying she was “quite sure” Clinton knows why she’s running. When Wagner pressed her further, she went on a familiar spiel about Clinton’s “lifetime record” of fighting for women and the middle class.
