The gloves are coming off…

Ahead of Iowa, Clinton Says She ‘Can Actually Produce Results’
Hillary Clinton, locked in a dead heat with Bernie Sanders three days before the Iowa caucuses, betrayed little sign of nerves in an interview with NBC News Friday, saying she relished the scrutiny that a close fight will bring her rival.
Clinton also accused Sanders of “trying to go negative” with ads accusing Wall Street of trying to buy off politicians — spots that didn’t name Clinton, but aired after she left Iowa Wednesday to raise money at a Philadelphia investment firm.
Clinton dismissed the move as an attempt to divert attention from his own campaign promises — including a “Medicare-for-all” health plan — which are attracting more criticism as he rises in the polls.
“That is a time-worn politician’s tactic,” Clinton told Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.
Clinton suggested that Sanders’ platform was based on unrealistic goals, and said she offered the opposite: “the more clear agenda that can actually produce results for people who can’t wait.”

Retreating Clinton Campaign Torches Iowa Town To Slow Advance Of Sanders Volunteers
HUMBOLDT, IA—After making sure to douse every home, farm, and business located in the municipality with gasoline, retreating Clinton campaign staffers reportedly set the central Iowa town of Humboldt ablaze Friday to stem the advance of Bernie Sanders volunteers.
“Once we received word the Sanders campaign had begun canvassing in nearby Fort Dodge, we only had a matter of hours to burn everything to the ground,” said communications director Jennifer Palmieri, who tossed a lit torch through the window of the town’s hardware store before rushing over to help a group of Hillary for America workers erect a roadblock made of dead livestock to prevent all entrance to and exit from the city.
