No other would-be presidential contender approaches her stature or public appeal. None, for now, will face the same scrutiny. Some of today’s headline grabbers — the attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Libya or the re-emergence of Monica Lewinsky — will diminish or disappear.

Not this time. Playing the role of president-in-waiting is the most precarious high-wire act in American politics. Clinton found that out in 2008, when a charismatic young senator from Illinois launched a wildly improbable campaign and somehow caught the wave of the zeitgeist and, well, you know the rest.
