Fighting in Iowa, Hillary Clinton fears repeat of 2008 loss

Fighting in Iowa, Hillary Clinton fears repeat of 2008 loss

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - When Bernie Sanders rolled into Decorah, nearly 2,300 people were waiting for him. Chants of "Feel the Bern" filled the spirited hall from a crowd roughly equivalent to a quarter of the town's population. "If we have the kind of turnout that I hope we can," Sanders told the rally, "then we're going to win here in Iowa."

Two days later, on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton received a far less raucous greeting in the same northeastern Iowa college town. A largely elderly crowd of 450 listened quietly, clapping politely at her applause lines.

It's all beginning to resemble a bad flashback for the second-time Democratic presidential candidate, who once again finds herself barnstorming through the frozen stretches of Iowa with a diminished lead in the polls and an underdog rival on the rise.

3. For her, yes

 

For the rest of us it's more like deja vu all over again.

5. Sounds like a wonderful flashback to me.

Didn't want Hillary Clinton in 2008, want her even LESS in 2016.

6. Linkbait headline. Nothing in that article quotes anything like that from her.

'AP Reporter Fears Democratic Primary Will End Soon Giving Them Nothing To Write About'

Fixed it.

9. special interests are in your way?

Hillary: "This is really hard, slow, painful political work to get through the thicket of objections, of special interests and powerful forces."

Is that why she coddles them close to her heart? At least she gets to keep all that money she earned as speaking fees, even if she does not get the presidency.
