Hillary Clinton won the Democratic Iowa caucus. The Democrat who has been cherished and anointed by the media as the cheerleader for the progressive cause can take a victory dance. She has taken her rhetoric for income equality and women’s’ right to the electorate. Her red carpet to the throne as the first female president is still intact. The liberal media loves it. Good for you, Hillary!
Is it really a victory? The only competition is a 74-year-old, narrow-minded socialist, Bernie Sanders. Six months ago she outpolled Sander by 46 points, an enormous political lead by any standard. The Clinton political machine was in overdrive and ready for the inevitable kill.
Then reality happened: Benghazi and her unsecured secret emails. She is knee-deep in these situations and with little explanation. The FBI and DOJ are on her tail. She still has questions to answer.
She squeaked a .2 percent victory over an avowed left-wing socialist in Iowa. What does that say about her legitimacy as a Democratic candidate? Is she trustworthy? Is she really a candidate of the people? Or is she just another political pundit preying on your vulnerability?
Never miss a local story.
After all, these are the Clintons.
