Dickerson: Clinton Wants People to Stop Talking About How Badly She Lost in N.H.

‘Hillary Clinton wants to turn the page, she wants a new story line to emerge after this debate’

ROSE: “CBS News political director and moderator of ‘Face the Nation’ John Dickerson is in South Carolina preparing for Saturday’s Republican debate. John, good morning.”
DICKERSON: “Good morning, Charlie.”
ROSE: “Are you outside?” (Laughter)
DICKERSON: “I am outside. I can see my breath. We brought New Hampshire down to South Carolina and I’m not sure they are very happy about it.”
ROSE: “OK. So there now we have a big debate down there. What’s the stakes for each of them in the context of what we’ve seen in New Hampshire going to South Carolina?”
DICKERSON: “Well, Hillary Clinton wants to turn the page, she wants a new story line to emerge after this debate. People stopped talking about how badly she lost in New Hampshire. Bernie Sanders has to build on that momentum from New Hampshire. He has to give people who are turning to him and looking at him maybe for the first time in a different way a really easy understandable message they can rally around.”
O’DONNELL: “But John, is there any question about how she’ll do in South Carolina and Nevada. The polls suggest that she is far out in front.”
DICKERSON: “Exactly. And what she wants to do is lay a predicate for victories in those two places, so that she can say I’m a national candidate, I represent the broad coalition of the Democratic Party. And so, she’s — those two states are very well set up for her. She just needs to get people thinking about those two states and not the last one.”
