New York Times Magazine national correspondent Mark Leibovich told MSNBC Friday in the wake of his interview with Hillary Clinton that she has not changed “at all” over the years since he’s been covering her.
Leibovich, the author of “This Town,” told Andrea Mitchell that despite “a lot of indications” that Clinton’s campaign would be run differently from her 2008 bid, the “cautious” and “calculating candidate” he’s seen over the years is still alive and well.
ANDREA MITCHELL: You’ve seen her over the years, you’ve seen her now in this campaign. How do you think she’s changed?
MARK LEIBOVICH: So far, not at all despite a lot of indications that it’s going to be different this time. I mean, look, there are a lot of operational things in the campaign that you hear are much better off than they were in 2008. But look, I mean, there was a hint at least last year when she was promoting her book that she was going to let it rip a little bit. She was past being the cautious, calculating candidate that we saw in ’08, and it hasn’t happened yet, and I think that was reflected in my own experience with her.
