Sometimes a website name is just a website name.
Maybe the move by a company that’s worked closely with the former first lady is just what it seems: yet another step by Hillary Rodham Clinton to prepare for another run for the Senate from New York in four years. Or another run for the White House. We won’t know, of course, for some time.

(And then, potentially, into a new presidential campaign fund, as she did with $10 million of her surplus 2006 Senate campaign funds).
If this year’s donors don’t approve that transfer soon, Clinton must return the ’08 money by Aug. 28.
The respected blogger Marc Ambinder of TheAtlantic.com is reporting tonight that a company associated with Clinton’s top advance team leaders, the Markham Group, purchased that domain name on June 8.
