MASON CITY, Iowa -- With less than a week to go before the Iowa caucus, Hillary Clinton is making her closing argument: That she can actually get the job done as president.
"The American people can't afford to wait for ideas that sound good on paper but will never make it in the real world," she says in a new television ad released Wednesday by her campaign. "We can make real progress right now."
The ad, one of two new spots that will run in Iowa this week, echoes the message that Clinton has been working to perfect as she has criss-crossed the state to turn out the vote. It's a departure from the sharp, if sometimes veiled, language she has used to describe her rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, at campaign stops as recently as last week. Instead, the ad focuses inward, on her own experience over decades of public service.
It also seeks to emphasize the qualities that many Iowans have named as the most important factor in their decision to support her.
