Hillary and Iowa

"Prominent Democrats are advising Sen. Hillary Clinton that, if she runs for president in 2008 as expected, she should avoid the Iowa caucuses as the first competition for the Democratic nomination," Robert Novak reports.

"That advice is based on the belief that any Democrat must run well to the left to win the Iowa caucuses. Many Democrats believe Sen. John Kerry's 2004 victory in Iowa, while clinching the nomination, hurt his chances for the general election."

Meanwhile, the AP quotes GOP strategist Nelson Warfield saying "that until Republicans learn to remain calm in the face of politicians named Clinton they will have a tough time beating them."
