When flag poles attack

Clinton had to contend with falling flag poles at a press conference Monday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - She has come under increased heat recently from her Democratic presidential rivals, but on Sunday Sen. Hillary Clinton was on the receiving end of a different kind of attack - falling flag poles.

The Democratic presidential frontrunner was wrapping up a press conference in Waterloo, Iowa when several large flag poles directly behind her started to fall down, as shown on a video posted by ABC News.

Aides came rushing to the stage as Clinton herself tried to handle the falling flags crashing around her.

"I think the bases are not weighted enough," the New York senator can be heard saying on video captured by ABC.

After a couple minutes, the flags were successfully stabilized.

    I think people will regret not voting her in for President. Because I think she would do a great job. An what they do in their pesonal life is there on business. It is not for us to judge them. They will answer for what they do in it own good time. As long as they do their job as they say they will. Who are you or I to judge any one. I just think it is time to put a woman in office and see how much gets done. As we all know is that it is the woman behind the man who does it all anyway. If it was not for us women, how do you think men get the job done. IT IS THE WOMAN THAT GETS IT DONE. SO SHE SHOULD BE IN OFFICE!!!!!!! Just remember how everyone feels about what BUSH has done. It could be a lot better than what it is. But if things do not go the way it should, we will never know. Will we. Peace not war.
