I don't think she's too worried. Considering she almost skipped Iowa altogether, I don't think she minds a 3rd. She's leading in most other states and nationally.
So was Howard Dean.

I agree. He can be quite inspiring himself.

Also, I just saw Chelsea Clinton standing behind Hillary.

All I see is Madeline Albright. Are you sure she's not the looker that's bewitching you?

That isn't the point.

We have heard for the last 8 yrs about how important it is to get out the young people vote. And every time, it doesn't happen, even though they recruit Hollywood and half the recording industry. If Obama managed to snag as huge of a proportion as they claim, of voters that nobody else has ever really managed to bring out, then yes, it says something about their GOTV at least.

In 1988

bob dole came in 1st

Pat Robertson, TV preacher came in second (all things through Christ)

and a sitting vice president GHW Bush came in 3rd
and eventually won the nomination

and had a lop-sided victory over Iowa 3rd place winner Dukakis see below
February 8, 1988 - Richard Gephardt (31%), Paul Simon (27%), Michael Dukakis (22%)
