In a very public "strategic memoranda" Hillary's chief strategist Mark Penn today announces Hillary will try to play the the leadership card in tonight's Democratic debate:
Poll after poll shows it's leadership that people see in Clinton, her pollster says.Penn didn't do his homework on all those polls.
He cites a number of independent media polls to make his case.
A recent Gallup poll found Hillary, Obama and Rudy Giuliani all rate "roughly the same'' on the question of leadership.
Marc Ambinder has posted an annotated version of Penn's strategic memo.
To paraphrase President Clinton, it all depends on the meaning of leadership.
