WASHINGTON — In a long, glowing profile of Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Elle magazine suggests that Minnesota’s senior senator ought to be ‘pointing her ambition at the White House’, one of many nice things that author Lisa DePaulo said about her.
The driving point of the article seems to be this paragraph:
Herein lies a key to Amy Klobuchar. She is acutely aware of the need to blend her folksiness, her realness, with her driving ambition, which, quite frankly, no woman should have to apologize for but all of them end up doing. That she does it better than most—with humor and the requisite self-deprecation—obscures the fact that Klobuchar is no accidental politician.
The speculation, summed up in the headline and left to the reader’s imagination in much of the rest, is that Klobuchar may one day make a serious run at the White House. The story serves to chronicle how she got from school to the Senate, the jumping-off point for such a run.
Long-time Klobuchar watchers won’t find much new in the profile, but it’s an interesting take from a national publication that clearly thinks Klobuchar has what it takes to finally break down the ultimate glass ceiling and step into the White House, if she wants it.
