They lunch regularly.
And, about two years ago, this tactic paid off, resulting in a marked shift in the Post's Hillary coverage. Translation: she got a warm and fuzzy nickname--"Hill" (replacing the cold, officious "Mrs Clinton"), which, of course, meant the carpet-bagger had, in their eyes, gone native. She'd become "one of us.
Murdoch even hosted a fund raising breakfast for herlast summer.

<But H>her positions on numerous issues - particularly involving national security - have been much closer to the political center than we would have expected. ...
What about the White House?
Well, New Yorkers simply expect their major officeholders to be presidential aspirants - and the pols always rise to the bait (occasionally delivering ludicrous results; has anyone seen George Pataki in New York lately?).
So Hillary's caught the bug.
Right--Now that Murdoch has her as an ally, he's happy to support her Presidential aspirations.
Is she smart, or what?
