I supported Hillary in 2008 mainly because I am a Bill Clinton loyalist. I was deeply disappointed in how Hillary ran her campaign in Iowa in 2007 & 2008. I was heavily courted by the Obama folks to support them but I felt it was too late and I would be doing an injustice to the Clinton campaign if I deserted the Clinton campaign. I believe in being consistent and fair. If Hillary does run again she will have no problem if she has no major or significant opposition in the caucuses or primaries but if she has major competition there I hope she improves her strategy. If that happens, she might have "had her day". If there is no major GOP competition in the wings for 2016 she might as well skip Iowa and save her money and concentrate money where she needs it. Iowa has had a lot of attention in the national limelight but we need to rest from it and concentrate on our local and state races where we can make the most difference. Presidential caucuses take away workers and supporters where they need to be and that is local. It is nice to have the attention but Iowa doesn't need to be first every time.
