Clinton in Iowa

As you may have heard or read, Senator Clinton’s deputy campaign manager, Mike Henry (previously the successful campaign manager for Virginia’s Governor Tim Kaine) has written a memo suggesting the campaign might do better to re-allocate its resources away from the January 22nd Iowa caucuses. Not too surprising - re-evaluating campaign strategies should be an ongoing tactic for any politico…although I can appreciate that the public acknowledgement of such reviews can be embarrassing. So the Clinton Campaign re-affirming its commitment to remaining in Iowa is to be expected. Clinton Campaign Plays Down Iowa Memo

But here’s the part I like:

“Communications director Howard Wolfson said that neither he nor Clinton nor campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle nor chief strategist Mark Penn nor media adviser Mandy Grunwald had read the memo before it became public.”

I wonder if this is the first time that Mike Henry is learning that nobody that counts is reading his memos.
