Anybody still want to pretend she's done hurting the party and the cause with her Trump-scale narcissism yet?

A Trump Scale, with Trump at the high end, would have to be a logarithmic one. like the moment magnitude scale they use for earthquakes.

Otherwise, the next closest on the scale would be measured in fractions approaching zero.

The hallmark of a successful politician is not that they lack narcissism, but that they have learned a modicum of discretion.

But whatever. Does this latest news mean that Hillary is done? Or that she's not done? Is she done if she only goes to districts she won last time, and that are probably safe anyway?

Well considering that the article notes that she's going to be working behind the scenes to help and support candidates, that she's not taking an "up front" role, it seems that this would indicate that as far as her own political career, yes, as far as being involved in politics, which has pretty much been her life since she was 16, then no. That makes sense, she's a former 1st lady and in some parts of the country well liked. Her support in those areas would be a great boost to the candidates there just as Laura Bush or Michelle Obama are likely to have some influence in certain areas of the country.
