Hillary Says: “You Can Look Inside My Mouth”

From her fans at the Associated Press:

Clinton invites voters to ‘inspect’ her

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer

DUNLAP, Iowa – Standing atop a stage in a livestock auction barn, Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton likened the experience to her quest to woo undecided voters in the closing days before Iowa’s pivotal caucuses.

“I’ve been to cattle barns before and sales before, in Arkansas, but I’ve never felt like I was the one that was being bid on,” Clinton told a crowd in western Iowa. “I know you’re going to inspect me. You can look inside my mouth if you want. I hope by the end of my time with you I can make the case for my candidacy and to ask you to consider caucusing for me.”

The former first lady made her comments during the launch of a five-day campaign blitz across Iowa less than three weeks before the state’s January 3 caucuses. Buoyed by the endorsement of the state’s largest newspaper, Clinton said she “could not be more pumped up” and that her campaign had regained its momentum after several shaky weeks.

The endorsement in Sunday’s Des Moines Register gave a huge lift to the Clinton team as it fights to stem the surging momentum of her lead rival, Barack Obama…

Clinton herself was hopping from stop to stop on a “Hilli-copter” to reach as many geographic regions of the ice-crusted state as possible.

Among supporters making an appearance was Bob Kerrey, the former Nebraska senator and governor whose borders Iowa.

Kerrey, who ran briefly for the Democratic nomination in 1992 against Bill Clinton, said he was endorsing Hillary Clinton “enthusiastically and unequivocally.

“She inspires my confidence. The question is, does she inspire your confidence?” Kerrey asked

Didn’t Mr. Kerrey once famously pronounce Mr. Clinton to be “an unusually good liar”? No wonder he admires Bill’s better half so.

But back to the inspection, one would be advised to not get too close:

The cracks are definitely beginning to show.
