Cuteness aside, the page is just the latest bit of evidence that in contrast to her 2008 run, Clinton will heavily lean on her identity as a mother and (now) grandmother this time around. As Jonathan Allen has argued, "The feminine motif will be fully integrated into her persona, her rhetoric, and her platform."
