Hillary Does the Second City

2007_12_OMG.JPGAlthough recent polling in Iowa and New Hampshire shows her slipping against Obama and Edwards, she's not backing down. Erstwhile local gal and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be taking a spin through Chicago tonight, hosting Hillary's Holiday Cheer at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom. Because who wants to shake hands in a cold Iowa parking lot when you can kick it at the Hyatt in Chicago?

Not to be outdone, the Obama campaign announced three days of "Celebrity Phonebanking" with special guests U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, and State Comptroller Dan Hynes. If you don't want to phone bank with Giannoulias, you can check out Hillary for just $25 (if you're a student), or $500 (if you want to be in the "Special Up-Front Section") .
