Capitol Report: Hillary Clinton’s Chipotle adventure: Let the campaign begin
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — A woman walked into a restaurant and ordered a burrito.
Not usually major news, for sure, but this woman is Hillary Clinton, she’s started her campaign with a road trip to Iowa, and she’s the odds-on favorite to become the next president of the U.S.
It’s a story best told via social media.

That indeed is Hillary, and behind her is longtime aide Huma Abedin, who you may recall is the wife of former Congressman Anthony Weiner. Yes, that Anthony Weiner. And they’re both wearing sunglasses.

Does everyone running for president have to visit a chipotle at some point during their candidacy?

Hold on, why do we have the security footage already? Is that standard policy at a Chipotle?
So you can just call Chipotle and they’ll send you a security image of a customer ordering a burrito?

Is Chipotle an appropriate venue to pick as first restaurant visit during the campaign?
Chipotle is one of the companies that said it could handle Obama’s proposed $ 10.10 minimum wage http://t.co/GBt0Z5DXNw

Should we have more or less coverage of this?
