Clinton has a plan to rein in bank abuse.

Hillary Clinton said last night that she would lay out a plan next week to rein in abuses on Wall Street and the shadow banking sector and to make sure that individuals who were responsible for financial wrongdoing went to jail.MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton has sent a copy of her most recent memoir to Republican presidential candidates after some raised questions about her record as Secretary of State. It follows the last debate in which Carly Fiorina got mileage out of this line: “If you want to stump a Democrat, ask them to name an accomplishment of Hillary Clinton.” I understand that you and your fellow Republican candidates for president were questioning my record of accomplishments at your last debate, so I thought you might enjoy reading my book, Hard Choices.

She joked, “There are so many of them, they could have a book club.” The campaign says Clinton sent the books last week to 14 candidates who participated in the Sept. 17 Republican debate, each with a personalized letter. Bush, setting off on his longest Iowa swing as a candidate, is hoping to deepen his support in a state where he has few natural advantages — and the poll numbers to prove it. Bush’s campaign announced a handful of new endorsements in the state, including one from Mayor Steve Gaer of West Des Moines, a former Scott Walker supporter whose blessing had been sought by other candidates appealing to Main Street Republicans.

The Bush campaign also released a 90-second video, titled “Why I’m Running,” with a message that seemed aimed at countering the outsider fervor that has propelled Donald J. Bernanke, the former Federal Reserve chairman, said while promoting his new memoir that “people should have gone to jail” after the financial crisis of 2008.

Sanders in New Hampshire polls, is still hanging on to a slender margin in Iowa. “I think a lot of people are looking at Bernie Sanders, but I don’t think hardly anyone is going to vote for him,” said a Clinton supporter, Bob Sanderson, a retired Army veteran, in Davenport. “They like what he’s saying right now; nobody thinks he can win in a general election.”
