On any given day, Republicans call Hillary Rodham Clinton a deeply flawed future presidential candidate. Or a formidable one. Or, with the right amount of Republican-led scrutiny, one who might not run after all.

At the same time, the GOP is building an anti-Clinton infrastructure that aims to undercut her appeal more than two years ahead of the presidential election. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
