The Clinton Campaign, By The Book


Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, meeting and greeting in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.(AP).

IOWA CITY, IOWA--Over the weekend, Barack Obama said Hillary Clinton has "run what Washington would call a textbook campaign," but he said that "textbook" was precisely the problem, as he argued that political tactics are less important than the direction in which the candidates would take the country.

Noting the strength of your rival's political operation may not be the way to win, but as she stumped through Iowa the last several days, it seemed Obama was right about one thing: the Clinton team has a very specific plan.

If you're attending an event in Iowa for Clinton, once you get close, dozens of "Hillary" signs line the path. The events, unlike those for many other candidates, usually start on time. Read more on Clinton's Iowa playbook.
