The Case of the Curious Shrinking Candidate

In a season when you're likely to read a lot of very strange wisdom on any given day, John Mercurio's observation about how Hillary Clinton closed out her Iowa campaign deserves some sort of prize for Weird Observation of the Day:
Clinton has done something curious, but strategically wise, in the closing days: She's virtually disappeared. Fully aware that her support climbs when she lowers her profile, Clinton has worked hard to make sure she's not the main story.

Well, here's an idea: Following this logic, if Hillary totally disappeared for, like, four months -- went to the beach on Antigua, say -- wouldn't that be, like, guaranteeing her nomination?

Risky perhaps, but, hey! we're up for it!
