The Headline Says What? "Sen. Clinton Rules Out 2008 Presidential Bid." Uh-uh. Read the story.
"I don't have any intentions or plans of running," Clinton said, according to a transcript of the ABC interview. She said she was flattered by speculation that she might throw her hat in the ring ...
When was the last time the press bought the "I have no intentions at this time" line? The conventional wisdom is that anyone who uses that formulation clearly intends to run. Otherwise, they'd just quote William Tecumseh Sherman.

Update: They changed the headline to read "Sen. Clinton Says Has No Plans for W.House Run."
