A gathering of pro-Hillary Clinton activists in Iowa this weekend revealed how supporters of the former first lady are hoping to learn from the mistakes of Clinton's failed attempt to win the Iowa caucuses in 2008. America Rising, a conservative opposition research firm, had its cameras rolling at the meeting, organized by Ready for Hillary, a super PAC that supports Clinton.
In one video, a supporter notes that Hillary must not be seen as the "ordained" candidate. "The environment has changed a lot in eight years. There's even more negativity about everything coming out of Washington," says the supporter. "All this stuff about her being, kind of, destined to be this, and it coming from top down, and it being ordained, we've really got to work hard to overcome that. It's really got to be grassroots up." Watch the video below:
