In an odd, surprisingly candid and perilous interview with the Des Moines Register's David Yepsen Hillary Clinton implies that voters in Iowa and Mississippi are sexist because they haven't elected women as governors, reps or senators. Iowa "poses a special burden to me" she said.
We’re sure there are couple of people who’d like to relieve her of that burden.
"I was shocked when I learned Iowa and Mississippi have never elected a woman governor, senator or member of Congress. There has got to be something at work here," she told Yepsen, theorizing it may be the risk-averse nature of a state built around agriculture.
"I think not only do I have to bring people to me, I have to maybe reassure people here maybe more than I do in New Hampshire, which has had a woman governor."
Then she takes a gratuitous shot at Ole Miss, which will provide the GOPers in the South with bulletin board material and will cause her nothing but problems in her quest to win over the upper south.
"How can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi?" she asked, siding with the Hawkeye State. "That's not the quality. That's not the communitarianism, that's not the openness I see in Iowa."
