Clinton Camp Looks to Feb. 5
By Katharine Q. Seelye
MANCHESTER, N.H. – Senator Hillary Clinton’s campaign is trying to forestall the notion that after her loss last night in Iowa, a loss in New Hampshire could end her quest for the Democratic presidential nomination.
In conference calls with reporters in some of the two dozen states that vote on Feb. 5, campaign officials said that she had the money and resources to compete in those states and predicted she would be the nominee.
It seemed a little unusual that just after losing Iowa to Senator Barack Obama – and just as Mrs. Clinton begins an intense five-day drive to recoup here in New Hampshire’s primary on Tuesday – her campaign would shift the focus to the states that vote a month later.
“Seemed a little unusual”? Not to me — I predicted it last night! Hey Hillary — I charge a lot less than Mark Penn. You know where to find me. ;-)
