Hand it to The Daily Show's Jon Stewart -- he tried to get former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to admit Tuesday night that she is running for the Democratic nomination for president.

She wouldn't do it.

Oh, she said many things, some of them veiled hints, others not-so-veiled, about her possible candidacy. Suffice it to say that she did nothing in her TV appearance to make doubters believe she won't seek the nomination.

Meanwhile, The New York Times today has published a piece Clinton's advisers have surely read: the dangers of campaigning when you're not really campaigning.
