Clinton took a moment to tend to her shoes Tuesday.
WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (CNN) - Her shoelace, that is.
After delivering a speech on retirement accounts Tuesday, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, was asked by an audience member, "Would you tie your shoes so that you don't trip over them?"
"I might need health care!" Clinton responded laughing. "I bought these moccasins, which I highly recommend to you, at the Fort Dodge [Iowa] museum and gift shop. They are so comfortable, but occasionally I have to stop and tie them... Thank you."
After first asking Clinton her thoughts on the length of the campaign season, the woman raised the shoelace issue as a quick follow-up.
Once the laughter in the audience died down, Clinton responded to the first question.
"Boy, you are singing my song. I'll tell you what, if there were a way to shorten campaigns I would be the first one in line."

Let me tell you something you Republicans, maybe you've never worn moccassins. The shoe laces they put on them are terrible! Even double tieing them doesn't work. So stop being so stupid.
Yes, this is a worthy story for CNN to report on at this time. I'm sure there is nothing going on more noteworthy. Bang up job, CNN. – Matt
Yeah-yeah, sure thing – I haven't seen anybody protesting a "worthy" news of traffic accident with Michelle Obama's car involved.
May she should just give up on her effort for the nomination; go out too celebrate and have a couple of glasses of Quats. Liquid fungicides that attack decay organisms. The quat preserve is used in swimming pool chemicals, shampoos, hospital mop washes, and many other human contact applications.
If George Bush were in the same shoe untied situation, there are two possibilities:
a) he will trip over the shoe lace and hit his head; or
b) he will forget the question after he ties up his shoe lace.
Oh sure, she may make president, she just won't know what to do. Awful judgment. Why does she want to be president anyway? She's really not for the people. Wouldn't she rather go out with the girls shopping for her rocking chair and future grandbaby's clothes and let someone run the country who can actually do it, like Obama?
