McCain out of Iowa on Caucus Night

Add John McCain to the list of Iowa Caucus night no-shows. Rudy Giuliani's schedule already shows he won't be here. McCain's Iowa State Chair Dave Roederer told me McCain will be in Iowa earlier in the day but will be in New Hampshire by caucus time.

Meantime, Hillary Clinton's camp adamantly insists (again) she will be here Thursday night before heading out in the late-night hours to get to New Hampshire. Clinton's Midwest Co-Chair Jerry Crawford told me previously because of the short amount of time between Iowa and the New Hampshire Primary (five days), Clinton needed to get there sooner, so she wouldn't be in Iowa Thursday night.

He said he wasn't sure if Bill Clinton would, instead, appear at his wife's rally Thursday night in Des Moines. Apparently, Crawford has told CNN he never stated this. Although, I've re-confirmed with a third person in the room with us during our conversation who verified Crawford did, indeed, make those statements.

here is a great question to ask them all? when we all go out to eat and we leave a tip ,the waitress has to pay taxes on the tip? we are really giving her a contribution to be here the next time we eat there? Now with the Hundreds of dollars raised for a person that can spend any way they wish, why in Gods Green Earth are those funds not counted as income and taxed ? Lets ask any of them why they think this is not? and would they change it? It would be great to tax Clintons camp 50 million and Obamas Camp another 50 million that the government needs ,this perk needs to end,this needs to be treated as income and pay taxes on it period,Imagine 22% ? of that in the social sercuity trust funds? Great story for 2008?

Let ask How would Mrs Clinton be open in the white house differ from an e-mail sent to me 8 months ago stating she only answers to New Yorkers when she is a U.S. Senator and they have New York Senators to answer to New Yorkers,does she not represent all of us?......... If she continues as a Senator will she support cuts in spending in congress pay and perks?........seems she is good at spending all kinds of money, 100's SNOW SHOVELS,PIES?,Helicoptor rides, seems she will be good at spending in the white house!!!!!!
