Hillary Meets Her Waterloo (Iowa!)

Falling Flags
ABC News--Eloise Harper and Rick Klein Report

It's been a rough stretch for Hillary Clinton -- a tough debate performance, a lost voice, and the revelation that the Clinton campaign had been coaching questioners at events.Then, on Sunday, everything started falling down around her. After a very Presidential-esque news conference - Clinton turned around to leave the reporters and their peppering questions. A staffer swooped open a curtain, and chaos ensued. Four large American flags came crashing in front of Senator Clinton as she headed for the door. In a controlled panic, the staffers and the Senator attempted to catch the flags before they fell to the ground.


"I think the bases are not weighted enough," Clinton said as she propped flags back up. One of Clinton's aides quickly summoned the advance man in charge to assist in the crisis. Clinton's spokesperson shifted back and forth between the cameras and the flag commotion before looking right at the cameras and saying, "Thanks everyone."There were no planted questions to worry about, but on this Veterans Day the flags dropping all around the Senator created quite a stir among the press before Clinton fled the scene.

How appropriate that this should happen on Veteran's Day.

The flags fell over laughing at Senator Clinton's BS!

She's suddenly looking vulnerable. Some polls in Iowa have her behind the queerbee Edwards. I'd rather face her or Obama in the big show. The 5 million dollar haircut is VERY good in front of a crowd. He's a real pile of ----, but to the casual observer he's smooth in a Bill Clinton sort of way.
