Hillary a no-show in a stacked showdown?
Although I wrote a post about it earlier, I have no idea what is happening at tonight's Iowa debate, because it is being broadcast on an elite network called HDNet that only five people in the United States can receive.
But there's some severe weather, and it is unclear whether Hillary will make it:
Des Moines, Iowa---Sleet, snow, and ½ an inch of ice blanket the streets of Des Moines, but tonight's Brown and Black Presidential Forum, featuring all eight Democratic presidential hopefuls, will go on as scheduled - and so will the candidates' ice spit ball throwing contest, including charges that the organizers of the event are stacking it with Clinton supporters.Hillary got booed earlier in Iowa, and that's interesting in light of the talk that the organizers of tonight's debate "are stacking it with Clinton supporters."
Stacked or not, will she make it?
UPDATE: Hillary appears to have made it, in time to tell Bill Richardson that governors make good vice presidents:
New Mexico's Bill Richardson, the only governor in the race, asked Hillary Clinton, in view of her husband's career, "Don't you think governors make good presidents?" Clinton shot back, "I also think they make good vice presidents," drawing guffaws from the audience and leaving Richardson momentarily speechless.
MORE: Hillary is also being accused of "tacking right":
Clinton is also on the right among the Democratic candidates in opposing state plans to issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, a measure Obama favors.That's not the way it appeared in Philadelphia.
UPDATE: Check out my Pajamas Media analysis of the debate I could not watch -- written before it happened!
