Clinton Campaign Memo Argues Against Competing In Iowa Democratic Caucus

New York (AP) -- Apparently not everyone in Hillary Rodham Clinton's Presidential Campaign is sold on the idea of competing in Iowa.

Two senior advisers to the New York Senator say Clinton’s deputy campaign manager wrote a memo this week making the case for Clinton to bypass the Iowa Caucuses and focus on later contests in the nomination fight.

The two advisers say there is little chance the senator would take the advice.

A top Clinton strategist says the campaign is studying various options for dealing with the rush of nomination contests in early 2008, including bypassing Iowa, but he says the Senator is determined to continue her Iowa campaign.

The memo was written as a new poll suggests Clinton is trailing both John Edwards and Barack Obama in Iowa.
