I just caught Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi here at the Clinton headquarters at the Hotel Fort Des Moines and asked him for his reaction to the seven-point margin she’s trailing Barack Obama by at the moment.
Here’s what he said: “I don’t think it’s that surprising. After months of intense scrutiny, she is still the best candidate out there.”
Then he said, “If Obama gets this win tonight, he’ll get some of the scrutiny she has been getting over these last 11 months. We’ll see if he can withstand that.
”I’m not saying there’s a deep secret there. I’m just saying he will now be subjected to normal scrutiny.”
