Those are somewhat amazing stories in the Post, Politico, & CNN about how strong Clinton is and how hard it would be for Biden to win the nomination. Note: they largely quote Clinton supporters and use her talking points.
Each story is written as if the email and trust issues have not emerged, or as if Sanders isn't running very close to her in early states.

The video emphasizes Christie's bluntness and biography. It does not mention where he's from -- New Jersey -- or the political party whose nomination he's vying for -- the Republican party.
Inevitability is said to be one of Hillary Clinton's hinderances in securing the Democratic party's nomination for president, that she must earn the nomination rather than claim it as a right. But to listen to Mrs.
Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a possible Republican presidential candidate, made the case that immigration policy should "protect"American workers and wages. Walker made the comments in an interview with Fox News's Sean Hannity:
