24 Hour Dorman: Revisionist Herstory
Excerpted from this post at 24 Hour Dorman
Democratic front-runner Barack Obama stood on an Iowa stage Tuesday
night, delivering a rousing speech to a big crowd at a big moment.
Nice visual, but Iowans have seen it before. His rival, Hillary
Clinton, was also still standing a few states away, passionately
fanning her flickering hopes to win the nomination with a forceful
speech in Kentucky, where she vowed to fight and scrap for every last
vote. That was something Iowans didn't see before January's crucial
caucuses, which Obama won in a stunning upset. You have to wonder, if
the twofisted Hillary of May had replaced the cautious Hillary of
January, whether things might have been different.
