Sen. Hillary Clinton holds a commanding lead in most national polls and early voting states, but in Iowa, she is in a three-person contest.--INDIANOLA, Iowa --Democrats enter the fall campaign with one question hanging over their party: Can anyone catch Hillary Clinton?
The New York senator has combined the party's most popular brand name with a muscular, disciplined campaign to take a commanding position almost everywhere. She has opened double-digit leads over her nearest rivals in national polls, as well as in early voting states such as New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and California. If she runs the tables there, the nomination almost certainly will be hers.
But few Iowa Democrats think any of them can win the nomination.
