The “Scooby Doo Van,” you know, like the one from the cartoon, how did she come up with such an original name?
Via The Hill:
Hillary Clinton is out to prove she’s just like you.
After the Democrat launched her long-awaited 2016 presidential campaign on Sunday, she literally hit the highway on a road trip to Iowa.
The campaign tactic, and the early tone of her retooled second try at the White House, contrasted sharply with the former secretary of State’s first bid eight years ago.
Casting herself as a “champion” of middle-class Americans, she portrayed herself in an online video released Sunday afternoon as someone who would take nothing for granted and who would be “hitting the road to earn your vote, because it’s your time.”
On Sunday evening, she made that promise a reality. According to MSNBC, Clinton left her New York home with top aides Huma Abedin and Nick Merrill, as well as members of the Secret Service, in a black van she’s dubbed the “Scooby Doo van.” The group headed for first-caucus state Iowa.
It was an unmistakable change in the former first lady, whom critics accused of seeking a coronation last time. In 2008, the then-senator would arrive at events in the Hawkeye state in a chartered helicopter, christened the “Hill-a-copter.”
