The Daily Beast’s Tim Mak has an unintentionally hilarious piece on the state of La Clinton’s “pre-campaign” hires and how the current “all-white, all-male” cast has Democrat strategists hitting the panic button: Hillary Clinton’s pre-presidential campaign has made some high-profile hires recently—but all of them, so far, are white males.
