Hillary Admits: More Work Ahead

Following her third-place finish in Thursday’s Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton has changed her tune in her latest fundraising letter, acknowledging that she is now in a dogfight for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The new e-mail letter sent to supporters begins: “‘We’ve got more work to do.’ That was my first reaction as I saw last night’s election results come in. And today in New Hampshire, I’m pounding the pavement, looking for every last vote in next Tuesday’s primary…

“Iowa sounded the opening bell of this campaign. New Hampshire is only four days away — and the pace only quickens from there.”

The tone of Hillary’s letter is a far cry from the sentiments her campaign expressed earlier in the race.

In May, Clinton’s chief strategist Mark Penn claimed Hillary was leading in the polls in all states. A few months later, he wrote a 350-page memo declaring her to be inevitable as the next president.

And in October, the New York Times quoted Clinton supporters discussing her vote for a resolution giving the president the authority to call the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization. She cast her vote, the supporters said, because she had already shifted from “primary mode,” when she must appeal to liberals, to “general election mode,” when she must find broad support.

It appears that Clinton is back in “primary mode.”
