Hillary Clinton Fundraiser: Obama Is The "Neighboring Boy"

From Democracynow.org:

Ellen Chesler, She is Distinguished Lecturer at the City University of New York and the author of “Woman of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement in America.” Long-time friend and fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

ELLEN CHESLER: Well, let’s put all of this a little bit in perspective. The big winner last night in Iowa was the Democratic Party, where two-and-a-half times the number of Republicans voted, and almost 60% more Democrats and independents caucused for the Democrats as four years ago. That’s an extraordinary statement that the treacherous reign of Bush and Cheney is over in this country and that Democrats and independents want change.

That said, Barack Obama placed first. He is the neighboring boy. He had a huge bump up in eastern Iowa on the border of Illinois in Springfield, where he served as a legislator. Hillary Clinton placed second. It was a tie for second.
