Iowa, We Hardly Knew Ya
by

While traveling from Iowa to New Hampshire yesterday, I found it amusing to read that Hillary Clinton has taken to trashing the Hawkeye State by saying that voters are “disenfranchised” by the caucus system. Also: “Iowa does not have the best track record in determining who the party’s nominee is,” she said. “Everybody knows that.”

This is the same woman who I heard say in Ames on Tuesday:

“In just a short period of time Iowans are going to have the opportunity to go to your precinct caucuses with your friends, with your family with your neighbors and stand up for the kind of America that we desperately want. Now this is an awesome responsibility and I think there’s good reason why you have that. Because you take it seriously, you understand what’s at stake, you’re willing to go and listen to all of us not once, or twice, but sometimes, a dozen times until you make up your mind…And you put us through our paces. This is an extraordinary experience. You know, it’s kind of like the equivalent of the consumer’s union. You know, you’re kicking the tires, you’re looking under the hood.”

I guess she must have had flat tires.

Meanwhile, the Clintons continue to beat on like boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. We’re told that like Bill before her, New Hampshire will make her the Comeback Kid. Plus: “I predict to you we are just at the beginning of a very tough economic year,” [Hillary] Clinton said. “There are some similarities between 1992 and today.”
