Hillary HQ hasn't done an edition of "Hillary TV" since before voting began (it's been too crazy to keep up!) but now seems like a good time for another one.
We begin with yesterday's awesome homecoming rally at the Apollo in Harlem, New York City:
Madison, Wisconsin speech and q&a on the Supreme Court - 3/28:
Conference on gun violence in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - 3/29:
Purchase, New York rally - 3/31
Rachel Maddow two-part interview - 3/30:
Hillary Clinton and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti discuss terrorism, homeland security and the importance of engaging communities - 3/24:
And finally, after the jump, six clips from Hillary's appearance last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live! I wish there was just one long clip, but there doesn't seem to be one. Nevertheless...enjoy!

This ad is as good as it gets, and should make us all feel incredibly proud to be supporters of this amazing and historic candidate. Bravo!
Make no mistake: New York loves Hillary, and she's going to win it big on April 19th. In fact, it's going to be the state that basically secures her the Democratic nomination in 2016...and how appropriate is that?
This ad is also a nice preview of what a winning Clinton general election campaign will look like against either Trump or Cruz. And if they aren't terrified, they damn well should be.

When a little bird landed on Bernie Sanders' podium on Friday evening, the reactions ranged from "Aww, that's cute!" to "Surely, this bird is a tad divine...a heavenly sign that the turning point in the Democratic race is upon us!". My reaction initially resembled the former, because it's always heartwarming to see a big smile on the face of a known grump...but it turns out that the latter reaction may have been the correct one, though not in the way that Sanders supporters hope.
Legend has it that when a wild bird flies into your house, it is actually a portent of bad luck. And unfortunately for Bernie, this is exactly what happened at his indoor rally at the Moda Center in Portland. Thus, there are initial indications that as adorable as that tiny bird may have been, it may have in fact been an omen signaling the upcoming demise of his presidential run.
According to the Reuters/Ipsos national tracking poll, Hillary Clinton has gained a whopping 10 points (+12 to +22) among likely Democratic voters in the space of just one day post-bird. This doesn't just happen, folks. This means something.
Or does it? Maybe it was just a random bird, and birds are everywhere. And maybe it's just another predictable poll fluctuation and the race will generally remain as steady as it has since New Hampshire.
Obviously the jury is still out, but rest assured that we'll be following up with more in-depth pre-bird and post-bird polling analysis next week.

The new national poll from PPP is out, and Clinton leads Sanders by 18 points:
On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton continues to have a resounding lead with 54% to 36% for Bernie Sanders. Clinton leads within every gender, race, and age group except younger voters and her supporters are also more committed- 84% say they will definitely vote for her compared to 61% who say the same for Sanders. Democrats generally perceive Clinton to be a moderate- 45% think she is compared to 37% who think she's a liberal, and 9% who think she's a conservative. Among Clinton's own voters 53% think she's a moderate to 36% who think she's a liberal, so to her own base being a moderate is not a bad thing. 67% of voters consider Sanders to be a liberal to 13% who think he's a moderate, and 10% who think he's a conservative.Did you catch that last part? 10% of all Democrats and Sanders' own supporters think he's a conservative (see pg 42). That simply defies all logic...but it might explain why some of his supporters might vote for Trump when Clinton is the nominee.
And check out how much more committed Hillary supporters are compared to Bernie (84%-61%)!
Anyway, this 18-point margin matches last week's result from Monmouth, suggesting that the race is settling as we enter the home stretch.
Bottom line: No magical bird is going to change the minds of our nation's Democratic voters.
A little bird landing on Bernie’s podium was cute, but not a sign from heaven. Birds are everywhere...and he's a politician, not a preacher.— Hillary HQ (@Hillary_HQ) March 26, 2016

Voters elected @POTUS—twice. He did his job and gave us a @SCOTUSnom. Time for Senate Republicans to do theirs.https://t.co/Ma4DHo22Tv— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 29, 2016
In a single term, #SCOTUS could demolish virtually every pillar of progressivism. This is a make-or-break moment. pic.twitter.com/JfoxJwXWg7— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 28, 2016

|An honor from Puyallup tribal leaders|
My prayers are with the victims of the horrific Easter Day attack in Lahore. Pakistan and all nations must confront & defeat terrorists. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 28, 2016
Connie McCloud, the culture director of the Puyallup Tribe, explained what the blanket represents. “It will heal you. It will give you strength. It will help you to continue on your path … that you’ve embarked on,” McCloud said. Hillary also received a Lushootseed Indian name: tsiwələx̌ʷi. Pronounced “tsee-wuh-luh-x̌wee” which means “Strong Woman.”
...Evelyn Simien, a professor at the University of Connecticut who studies black voting patterns, said Clinton’s outreach has been savvy. But she also stressed that black women have long been active Democratic voters and they know Clinton far better than Sanders. She said this year’s support is not just about personal connection, but that “it comes down to politics and the issues.”
