Hillary Clinton’s staff started dissing Iowa minutes after they were “wheels up” and on their way to New Hampshire. Here are just a few of the quotes:
“The worst thing would be to over count Iowa and its importance,” said chief strategist Mark Penn.
“Iowa doesn’t have a record of picking presidents.”
“Iowa is so small, it’s like a mayor’s race in a medium-sized city,” traveling press secretary Jay Carson said.
“It wouldn’t be wise to put too much emphasis on it (the Iowa Caucus).”
Wow. Way to go Hillary. Voters didn’t caucus for you, so what do you do? You minimize the value of their vote. How brilliant.
Come November, I think Iowans will have the last laugh.
