Clinton Booed at Heartland Forum
December 01, 2007 6:04 PM
ABC News' Eloise Harper reports: A day after dealing with a hostage crisis, Sen. Hillary Clinton faced a tough crowd in Iowa. Clinton did not receive the warmest of welcomes at the Heartland Form in Des Moines, IA, and although the hostage scare was mentioned, the announcer brushed it off quickly in order to get to questions. Clinton, who was forced to call in to speak to the crowd of thousands because of weather difficulties, took questions on topics from healthcare to illegal immigration.
The senator was asked if she would "make a decision to give undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship" during her first 100 days in office. Clinton responded saying, "I have been favoring a plan to citizenship for years. I voted for it in the Senate, I have spoke out about it around Iowa and the country and in my campaign. And as president comprehensive immigration reform will be a high priority for me."
Soft booing could be heard from the audience. The man repeated his question about the first 100 days. Clinton replied, "Well you've to get congress to pass the legislation and the president to do as much as possible, which I will do." Louder boos came from the crowd.
Clinton was thanked for her appearance and the moderator expressed sympathies for the ordeal she suffered yesterday. Clinton thanked the moderator. More booing could be heard from the crowd again after she hung up the line.
Barring any travel troubles, Clinton is still planning on attending the Brown and Black Presidential Forum in Des Moines Saturday night.

What did Hillary have to do to deal with the hostage crisis? Funny...but I thought it was the police hostage negotiators and SWAT teams that dealt with the hostage crisis in NH.
Even Iowa knows it was the “Clinton Hostage Hoax.”
gutless dems. they wouldn’t boo her if she were there in person. and they’ll dutifully march in lockstep to the polls and vote for her next November...just like the lemmings/zombies they are.
I hope those were republican plants...turn about is fair play.
She is correct on that point. Does the liberal moron crowd thinks the president enacts laws all alone?
They probably do. I'm reminded of the on line petition I received a few years back, demanding that G.W.B. lower gas prices.
Yah, but ABC will just make them look like boors.
Quite unlike their reporting of the treatment conservatives get from the moonbat left.
If only you had signed it!//sarc off
I heard this early am (Sat) the airports were closed down.
How did she get there? Just wondering?
She put it out on CNN that she may not be able to attend due to airport close downs.
Hmmm She made it hmmmm.
” Clinton, who was forced to call in to speak to the crowd of thousands because of weather difficulties”
Most likely, they were illegal aliens.
If anyone is watching this liberal-loverfest, you'll verify what I'm going to say - it is completely unprofessional, with mike failures, and all kinds of goofy crap.
They have this section where a candidate asks questions of another candidate. To show how schizo Kookcinich is, he asked HIMSELF a question about national single-payer healthcare.
“She is correct on that point. Does the liberal moron crowd thinks the president enacts laws all alone?”
The liberal moron crowd should all be moved to Venezuela. Then they can have a President that enacts laws all alone (Hugo Chavez). And they can live in a socialist paradise.
Doesn’t matter who it was. Hillary will have her mafia connections take care of things, and remove the “boos” from existence; as if they never happened.
Sounds like there is heart left in the Heartland.
Maybe this witch will melt away in the Spring rains of 2008.
What, are you a Clinton hater? She single handedly stormed the office in riot gear and saved the day!
Do I need the sarcasm thingee?
In Iowa? HA
Met with advisers to see how they could milk this for all they can for her on the positive side. Like, SHE was a victim of the hostage issue also.
Why shouldn't they? Some people on this forum think the same thing.
It is a bit discouraging on occasion.
