Clinton Touts Experience in Iowa

Hillary Clinton remained in Iowa on Tuesday where she hosted three Get out the Caucus events. During each of the events, she highlighted her experience and pragmatism arguing that she is the best choice for the Democratic nominee. During her first event in Decorah, Clinton spoke before taking questions from the audience. One of the questions was whether she would consider appointing President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court. President Obama has expressed interest in the court, and it would not the unprecedented. President William Howard Taft served on the Supreme Court after his term as president. Clinton thought the idea of appointing President Obama was a good idea. A partial video from the event is below. A full video will be added when/if available.

Clinton then traveled to Cedar Falls where she focused on the economy and those who have not yet recovered from the financial crisis. She spoke about her platform and how she has laid out her platform and explained how she is going to pay for her plans. Clinton vowed not to raise taxes on those in the middle or lower classes. During her speech, she also explained how disastrous it would be to elect a Republican president because they would begin to undo the progress of the last eight years. She said, “I want you to know that I’m not just shouting slogans. I’m not just engaging in rhetoric. I’ve thought this through. I have a plan. I don’t think you can get what we need done in this election, or in the presidency, unless you level with people.” A video from the event will be posted when/if available.

The final event of the day was in Marshalltown, where Clinton spoke about the importance of a Democrat succeeding President Obama and why she should be is successor. She then spoke about the key focuses of her campaign, including the economy, heath care, and clean energy. A video of her speech is below.
