pulls out the big gun, Bill in Iowa
Former President Bill
Clinton was next to Hilary during the campaign in Iowa.
Bill Clinton seems to be the strongest weapon in Hillary's
arsenal when campaigning in states where she is not atop of the
polls. Bill was next to the 2008 Democratic Presidential
Candidate in her rally in Iowa on Monday, as well. A very casual
Bill threw in a few jokes, "warmed up" the crowd and let Hillary
do her usual routine - improvement of the domestic policy and
ending the war in Iraq.
Despite arriving for the rally an hour
late than scheduled, a warm welcome from the public proved that
Hillary Clinton still has a good shot at the state with the
first caucuses of the nomination process. One thing to keep in
mind is that usually Bill Clinton plays a behind-the-scene role
in Hilary's campaign. The fact that Hillary Clinton had to bring
along Bill at the rally, to ensure the people that he will be
helping in the White House, could be a sign of her campaign loosing momentum.
Hillary Clinton still has the best odds
among all of the presidential candidates to win the 2008
Elections, 2/1 as posted by the Internet betting website
Sportsbook.com, and even the U.K. bookmaker
Bet365 agrees with 6/4 odds on
But Barack Obama is closing the gap
between the two democratic candidates, reporting over $30
million in funds raised in his second quarter. That's $10
million more than Hillary Clinton is expected to report. Obama
still has the odds of 7/2 to win, but an adjustment of his odds
lurks in the near future. If we start seeing more and more
of Bill Clinton at Hillary's campaigns, you may want to consider
adjusting your betting strategy.
