You’ve probably heard: Chelsea Clinton is having a baby. Hillary Clinton is going to be a grandmother, Bill Clinton a grandfather. You’ve also probably heard that Hillary Clinton is very possibly going to run for president in 2016.
You know what that means: UNLEASH THE BABY ANALYSIS.
There’s already been a startling amount written about what the Royal Clinton Baby means for Hillary Clinton’s potential run in 2016. The Christian Science Monitor asks: Does the incoming grandchild make her less likely to run for president? Will the eventual child be a campaign surrogate, asks The Washington Post? Whatever it is, the infant-to-be is already a “politico-obstetric earthquake,” says Politico.
None of this even a little tops what happened on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday morning, where Andrew Ross Sorkin of The New York Times tried to make the case that the baby is going to be a game-changer for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 hopes to a deeply, deeply skeptical panel.

The clip is beautiful and needs no further introduction. But really, please just watch the whole thing.
