Clinton Biographer on New Hampshire Win

Sam Stein of The Huffington Post interviews Sally Bendell Smith, author of "For Love of Politics -- Bill and Hillary Clinton: The White House Years." and revealed some interesting insights.

"The thing that surprised me the most were in the last few days of Iowa," said Smith. "It was the woefully subdued affect she had. She was lowering her voice, speaking slowly, trying to be presidential, I guess. That seemed out of character...Even at the weepy moment, when her eyes were filling were tears. What was most remarkable was that she stayed relentlessly on the attack," Smith added. "She got emotional up to a point and then just never deviated from her focus, which was to continue to throw the daggers at Obama and Edwards. She got in some deft points while she was apparently melting."
