Sen. Klobuchar Travels to Iowa

If a Democrat goes to Iowa, and it isn't Hillary Clinton, does it count?

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar's trip to Iowa today may be just a hop and a skip over the border to a neighboring state, but its putting her squarely among the ranks of non-Clinton presidential contenders for 2016.

There is, after all, no accidental reason for a politician to be in Iowa -- ever. The problem: Even if she isn't in attendance, the specter of Hillary Clinton is still ever present.

Klobuchar speaks tonight at the annual Northern Iowa Democratic Party's Wing Ding fundraiser, a bastion of Democratic politics in the swing state that for the last 10 years has featured former presidential contenders like John Edwards in 2006 and Obama in 2007.
