Hillary writes an op-ed about ‘Iowans I met’: They were all hand-picked beforehand

Clinton sat to talk with three young Iowans at a coffee shop on Apri 14 – all of whom were driven to the event by her Iowa campaign’s political director

Hillary Clinton cited ideas from five ‘Iowans I met’ during a recent campaign swing, when she wrote an op-ed Monday. All five, it turns out, were hand-picked by her campaign aides to attend closed events with her.

The opinion essay, which ran in the Des Monies Register, makes the case that her campaign in the early caucus state ‘isn’t going to be about me, it’s going to be about Iowans and people across our country.’

Ordinary Iowans, those not subjected to vetting in advance, apparently have yet to meet her.

The five in Clinton’s op-ed were among only 13 Iowans who were permitted to participate in the two scheduled ’roundtable’ events that her staff staged two weeks ago…

  • Hard to say if she will get the nomination. I hope so.

    If she had nothing to hide, such vetting would be unnecessary.

    Why do the PR people still think they can hoodwink people with these embarrassingly clumsy, obviously staged events? It’s as though they’re only vaguely of this called the “internets”.

    I hope she has a stroke.

    Her campaign is an indication of how imaginary the results of the general election will be. The Dems have already tallied up her victory. The rest is just theater and the ballot you cast will have been meaningless, worthless and discarded. I suspect the Hillary coronation will be the last Presidential election America pretends to hold. From then on the President will be appointed by committee of senior Democrats.

      Oh, please! During the Bush years, there was similar chatter about how Republicans gained permanent control over the government. Whether she wins or not and how long will be her grip on the government depends on how stupid today’s Republicans are.

        I suspect Obama/Hillary is the Democratic party’s revenge for Bush v Gore 2000. All of Obama’s and Hillary’s heroes publicly extol their own greatness at stealing elections.

    Heard this on Savage nation:
    Snow White, Superman and Pinnochio walk down a street and the see a beauty contest. Show White enters and wins first place. They walk further and see an armwrestling contest. Superman enters and wins first place. They walk even further and see a contest for the biggest liar in the world. “I got this one!” says Pinnochio. But after half an hour he comes in tears and asks “Who the hell is Hillary Clinton?”
