Expectations Game

The Clinton camp is really sounding desperate about Iowa:

“Our definition of success doesn’t necessarily mean coming in first,” explains Clinton spokesman Mark Daley. “As long as we have a strong showing on caucus night.”
And he said Obama has certain advantages. “We’re running against a guy from a neighboring state who shares media markets with the state.”

As opposed to someone who was First Lady for eight years and who’s been in the national limelight for fifteen. No advantages there.
In any case, the fact that they’re trying to tamp down expectations more than a month before the caucus signals that they expect a loss. I hope they’re right.
