The Clinton Machine Kicks Into High Gear
Seeing her lead slip in Iowa, Hillary has decided to double both her time and advertising in the state in the weeks leading up to the election. A story has also emerged that Senator Clinton has scandalous information on Barack Obama and is sitting on it until the time is right. Her campaign, of course, claimed that they don't know what the report is about.
It looks like Hillary is nervous about her chances in Iowa. Her lead has slipped to 2% over Obama in recent polls by Research 2000 and Strategic Vision. Since Iowa is the first state to hold elections, a win or a virtual tie by Obama could propel his standing in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and other states.
Clinton is also preparing to "swift-boat" Barack Obama if he gets close enough to give her a challenge. Look for negative news about Senator Obama to leak out within a week of the Iowa caucus. Hillary will deny being the source of the leak, but we all know better.
These politics of sleaze is something that the American public hates. However, Hillary knows that the backlash against her will be minimal because the mainstream media has already anointed her the nominee. If you watched the debate the other night and saw the softball questions lobbied to Clinton, you'd agree.
