In an interview with the Des Moines Register’s David Yepsen, she said she was surprised that Iowa, like Mississippi, had never elected a woman governor, senator or member of Congress.
“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 said.
“How can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi?” she asked, suggesting that Iowa is too good for that. “That’s not the quality. That’s not the communitarianism, that’s not the openness I see in Iowa.”
How do the politicos in Mississippi feel about what she had to say?
“Our official comment is, we decline to comment,’’ said Terry Cassreino, spokesman for the Mississippi Democratic Party.
The state Republican chairman, however, was not nearly as reticent.
“I think that her statements about Mississippi are probably an acknowledgement that she has no chance of carrying this state in a general election,’’ said Jim Herring, the Republican chairman.
Herring was echoing a common refrain from the John Edwards’ campaign – that Clinton would not do well in the South in November of 2008. Of course, few Democratic candidates for president have performed well in Mississippi in recent history. In 2004, President Bush beat Sen. John Kerry by 20 percentage points.
And Herring pointed out that Mississippi currently employs a woman lieutenant governor, Amy Tuck. Tuck, who is the second woman to serve as Mississippi’s lieutenant governor, has held that office since she was first elected as a Democrat in 1999 before changing parties.
“I don’t know if she doesn’t think that’s not a high-ranking office, but it’s the second highest-ranking office in Mississippi,’’ he said.
Mississippi will be holding their primary vote on Tuesday, March 11th.

AS THE “first pet” of the Clinton era, Socks, the White House cat, allowed “chilly” Hillary Clinton to show a caring, maternal side as well as bringing joy to her daughter, Chelsea. So where is Socks today?
Once the presidency was over, there was no room for Socks any more. After years of loyal service at the White House, the black and white cat was dumped on Betty Currie, Bill Clinton’s personal secretary, who also had an embarrassing clean-up role in the saga of his relationship with the intern Monica Lewinsky.

“Thank you, Mrs. Broaddrick, for everything you do for Bill.”
Hillary Clinton’s comments to Juanita Broadrick two weeks after Bill raped Mrs. Broadrick in a Little Rock hotel room. Hillary was fully aware of this ‘incident’ at the time she expressed her ‘thanks’ to Juanita for remaining silent at a critical time in Bill’s political career.
Mrs. Broaddrick is shown in the right of this photo, taken just a few months before she was raped by Bill Clinton.
