I have no idea what he meant by this, and I doubt he does either, but Bill Clinton told ABC News of Iowa: "You just want to know you left it all on the floor, and I think we did,"
The Clintons have not aged very well. I know he is still recovering, more than a decade after his heart attack. I do not wish to make light of the infirmities of age. But I read the ABC News story and thought, what the hell?
"You just want to know you left it all on the floor, and I think we did," the former president told ABC News.
"We've had a chance to get her message out. I feel good about it but you don't know what's going to happen," Bill Clinton said, noting Iowa's history of unpredictability when it comes to choosing who wins the state's caucuses.
Following a campaign event at a college in Grinnell, Iowa, today, the former president greeted supporters mentioning his fond memories in Iowa both while he was campaigning for his own presidential bid and also for his wife's eight years ago. ABC News caught up with the president immediately following his speech asking him if Iowa feels any different than it did eight years ago when Hillary Clinton first ran.
"It feels good, I mean you never know what's going to happen here, but it feels good," the former president said. "First of all she's got so many wonderful young people working for her in all these communities. And I think she's done a really good job. She's made a serious commitment to Iowa."Why are they running? They represent the past -- so much so that a 73-year-old communist seems fresher.
Meanwhile, let us hope they clean up the floor quickly, and throw away whatever he left on the flor.
