Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for the White House on April 12, and in the 29 days since then, she has taken a total of eight questions — one of which she answered, “I’m having a great time.”

For the record, most of those questions were in the first week, including shortly after she drove to Iowa in a “Scooby Doo” van and dodged those pesky “everyday Americans” she’s always talking about by wearing dark sunglasses into a Chipotle when she and her entourage made a grub stop.

In fact, Hillary hasn’t taken a question from the press in 21 days. She has made random appearances — speeches at small events, roundtables with voters — and each time, dozens of reporters are clamoring for information, but campaign handlers shut off access to Hillary, who often whisked by in a blur.

The “Anti-Hillary Candidate” in the race, Carly Fiorina, is doing the exact opposite of Hillary: She’s gone before reporters two-dozen-plus times and answered more than 300 questions. 

“She continues to impress voters, pundits, and reporters alike with her willingness to share her thoughts and ideas – and to answer any question, from whether she likes hot dogs to how she would tackle the crisis in the Middle East,” said deputy campaign manager, Sasha Isgur Flores. “This is in stark contrast to many other candidates – and most especially to Hillary Clinton.”
