Hillary Clinton skips Democratic National Convention

Rappler.com

Long a fixture in the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton will not be attending perhaps for the first time since 1968.  Her spokesman pointed out this is because of a federal ban prohibiting the US Secretary of State from being involved in partisan politics.  Still, attention is on Clinton now because of the high popularity she is enjoying and repeated calls from fellow democrats for her to consider another presidential run. Clinton has stated several times she plans to retire from politics.  A Hillary Clinton political meme in the Texts from Hillary Tumblr blog has also captured media attention.
