The only thing he's interested in is protecting himself from political defeat. ... He's got no guts."

Hillary Clinton's Wednesday with the Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley was about electing Bruce Braley. She talked almost exclusively about his bona fides, and the problems with his Republican opponent.
