Iowans go to the caucuses tomorrow in the very first test of the presidential season, so here’s our Sunday open thread to talk about that or anything at all else you’d like. A couple of factors to get it started…
Check out out the New York Occasions editorial board’s description of Hillary Clinton in its endorsement of her for the Democrat nomination:
Voters have the opportunity to decide on 1 of the most broadly and deeply certified presidential candidates in contemporary history.
Her other exclusive top quality is that she’s the only 1 underneath FBI investigation.
On the GOP side, the Times endorsed John Kasich for the nomination, which comes as great information for Republicans not endorsed by the New York Instances.
For what it’s really worth, the ultimate Iowa polls:

Martin O’Malley remarks:
This kind of factor has to be integrated in the time capsule of stories that will support best represent the Obama era:
For more than 2 many years, the Navy’s intelligence chief has been caught with a main handicap: He’s not permitted to know any secrets and techniques.
Vice Adm. Ted “Twig” Branch has been barred from reading through, seeing or hearing classified info because November 2013, when the Navy realized from the Justice Division that his title had surfaced in a giant corruption investigation involving a foreign defense contractor and scores of Navy personnel.
Worried that Branch was on the verge of getting indicted, Navy leaders suspended his entry to classified materials.
If the Navy’s intel chief desires to see classified info he’ll have to inquire Hillary if he can borrow her server.
Deadly attacks by Islamic terrorists in Paris, San Bernardino and elsewhere combined with the spread of ISIS have Americans on edge when it comes to national protection. So with that in thoughts, President Obama will check out a U.S. mosque for the initial time ever as president to try to alleviate their issues:
Pesident Barack Obama will check out a mosque in Baltimore County on Wednesday amid increasing concern about hostility directed toward Muslim Americans. It will be Obama’s initial pay a visit to to an American mosque as president.
Obama will supply remarks at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, positioned in Catonsville, and will meet with community members there to talk about religious freedom, White Residence officials mentioned Saturday.
Administration officials hope the visit will send a message at a time when Muslim leaders are more and more anxious about reactions following the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.
An additional one particular for the Obama era time capsule.
This morning, Hillary once again tried to make everybody think that the FBI is component of the Huge Appropriate Wing Conspiracy towards her:
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says the hubbub over whether she had secret emails on her server is “very much like Benghazi,” a politically motivated scandal that is most likely not as significant as Republicans propose.
Clinton advised ABC’s “This Week” that “it’s fairly clear” that Republicans are “grasping at straws” in their response to the most recent release of emails from Clinton’s private residence server.
Hillary’s claim that she had no classified material in her personal email could be verified, but the Obama administration (which is also apparently part of the VRWC) will not release dozens of emails due to the fact the material in them is way too classified.
Elizabeth Warren fires a couple of arrows across Hillary’s bow:
The following president can honor the straightforward notion that no person is above the law, but it will occur only if voters demand it.

Lastly, does it get any more “Trump” than a fly-by of the crowd whilst the theme from the film “Air Force One” plays on the PA method?
