    its been reported that she was told Iowa wouldn't favor her, to spend minimal time and Penn won the fight that she should make an all out effort.  She wasted a lot of time and money that could have been spent elsewhere.  But there were a lot of caucus states early, I'm not sure what would have really helped.

    But, yes, her arguments change as her circumstances change.  She doesn't believe in anything.

      If she had focused less on Iowa and more on New Hampshire, she probably would have won NH by a bit more -- and it wouldn't have been a big deal.

      She still would have lost SC.

      She would have lost IA by even more, of course.  And, had she not build a caucus infrastructure in IA, she likely would have done even worse in NV and lost the local level delegate contest.

      As a matter of fact, if she had ignored Iowa, then NH wouldn't have saved her campaign because she would have been seen as winning a more or less uncontested primary when the other two major candidates were duking it out in Iowa.

      WARNING: There is a high probability that the preceding comment is snark. Use your best judgment (hopefully better than Sen. Clinton's or Sen. McCain's).

      Obama - the "change" candidate

      Clinton - the "change my story every time I'm caught lying or when I think I can gain some kind of advantage" candidate
