CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa --The Clinton campaign has given out more than 600 shovels, in case it snows on Thursday night. They have delivered bushels of salt to their field offices, in case of ice. And some 4,500 people are ready to drive others to the caucus sites tomorrow, according to Iowa state director Teresa Vilmain.
All that leaves in the final hours for the candidate to do is convince those voters who still -- despite a year of campaigning -- have not yet made up their minds. Clinton advisers believe there are anywhere from 6 percent (as reported in the latest Des Moines Register poll) to 21 percent of uncommitted voters out there for the taking.
Part of Clinton's pitch here on Wednesday afternoon was a familiar riff on her work as a senator, which she said included finding common ground with Republicans such as Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina (one of the members of Congress who managed the impeachment of her husband in the 1990s). Clinton said her bipartisan work is evidence of her approach to politics.
"You don't run for office to feed your ego. You don't run for office to get your name in the headlines. You run for office to help other people," Clinton said.
