Hillary Clinton, along with boosters Bill and Chelsea Clinton, Madeleine Albright and Wesley Clark thanked all the other Democratic nominees (except Mike Gravel) and put her best face forward to her third place finish.
This is a great night for Democrats. We have seen an unprecedented turn out here in Iowa and that is good news. Because, today, we are sending a clear message: that we are going to have change and that change will be a Democratic president in the White House in 2009.
Hubris Sonic did a little number crunching of the Iowa "turnstile count" and if Iowa is indicative of the entire nation, Hillary is absolutely right...this will be a big election for Democrats.
