Hillary and/or Bill to spend nearly every day in Iowa from now until the caucuses
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/18/us/politics/18dems.ht...

In the four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Mrs. Clinton, whose campaign has been on the defensive lately because of her own missteps and increasingly aggressive attacks from her rivals, is moving to double or triple the amount of time she has spent here in recent months. Seldom will a day go by, aides said, when either she or former President Bill Clinton will not be on some patch of Iowa soil trying to solidify her support and win over an unusually high number of uncommitted voters.

Were going to begin using all the assets we have, said Tom Vilsack, a former governor of Iowa who serves as co-chairman of the Clinton campaign. We havent been bashful about asking for the moon here.

Thank you both Clintons for having the Audacity of Perseverance and a great work ethic, leaving nothing to chance!

2. Well, that IS the way the candidates are SUPPOSED to do it.
The NH and Iowa experiences are very personal. If they aren't there, they can't expect results. Tip O'Neill remembered the adage about one of his loyal constituents, who told him that she didn't vote for him during one election. He was surprised and asked WHY? Her answer: You didn't ask.

The lesson: People like to be ASKED for their vote. Ya gotta be there, and you have to ASK.

Not all of them are out there asking, though. The ones who are serious should be spending the bulk of their time in the first three states, with their crews getting out there in heavy duty mode, and begin to have their campaigns starting to do mailings and smile and dial in the subsequent ones.

Those early wins can be helpful--you don't have to win, but placing is almost as good, especially if you're coming from behind.

5. I'm just glad I no longer live in Iowa.
Not just the Clintons. I couldn't handle any of this primary nonsense.

10. Her number will go through the roof over the next few weeks!
Obama and Edwards poll numbers will be shown sinking like rocks.

Hillary will show a clear win in Iowa!

Obama is playing the election game like a fool and Edwards, well, he's just plain nasty and unPresidential like.
