8. No. She hid off to the side with Tom Harkin.

Actually, though, she was flanked mostly by media and some lookie-loos.

10. Yep, she hid from the general public.

I wish she would have done the soapbox. She needs to spend more time taking unfiltered questions from non-supporters. All the other candidates are getting tough questions. Hillary is in this weird, protective bubble that isn't going to help her once the general election rolls around.

And using Tom Harkin as a shield walking around the Fair was pretty sad.

But, she did do a press avail at the Fair. Most of the questions were about the emails. She made a lot of declarative statements that she better hope pan out. She stated that no classified information was sent or received by her at the time. She basically tried to downplay the whole thing and say it was just a turfwar. For her sake and the country's sake, I hope she is right.

13. That Oligarchy Response Team shirt was given

to people crashing closed ALEC events.

Highly appropriate.

4. I saw Bernie's speech on C-SPAN. It was a good stump speech.

 

It was clear, decisive, and good points on college education.
