Democrat presidential candidate Bill Bradley says he’s upbeat about his chances in Monday’s Caucuses — although he acknowledges the real question is who will show up at the precinct meetings. Bradley has leaders in one-thousand of Iowa’s 2,142 precincts — and the Bradley campaign has contacted about 200-thousand voters by phone. On Wednesday in New Hampshire, Bradley’s eyes filled with tears after he talked with a single mother and a teacher about lack of health insurance.Yesterday, Bradley said it was an important campaign moment.Bradley disclosed last night in Mount Pleasant that he’s had four more episodes of an irregular heartbeat since his December visit to a doctor to check on the condition, but he says they’re not life-threatening and his campaign schedule was not interrupted. Bradley campaigns in Burlington, Muscatine and Davenport today. Bradley’s rival, Al Gore, arrived in Iowa last night and suggested Iowans should be insulted by Bradley’s assertion that Gore’s backers represent “emtrenched power.” Bradley says it’s no insult, as Gore has all the benefits of the Vice Presidency.
