Statehouse Snippets: Hillary's Calling
Excerpted from this post at Statehouse Snippets
Yet another example of what Tom Vilsack is up against as he seeks the presidency:
Days after his campaign kick-off made a smallish-to-medium ripple in the national media, political Web sites blared the news today that U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton made – gasp – actual phone calls to key Iowa Democrats. She talked with former Iowa AG and Clinton Justice Department official Bonnie Campbell and former Iowa Democratic Party chairman Gordon Fischer, among others. And that smattering of phone calls spawned a 7.5 tremor on the political Richter scale. The Drudge Report yelled "Hello Iowa" under Clinton's photo. Everyone speculated on what it means for her political future. The only way it could have been bigger is if one of those calls was to Britney Spears.
