<p>On Tuesday, all three network morning shows fretted over Hillary Clinton barely defeating Bernie Sanders in the Iowa caucus. NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> was the most melodramatic, with co-host Matt Lauer declaring: &ldquo;Hillary Clinton gets to come out of Iowa and say, technically, &lsquo;I&#39;m the winner,&rsquo; but <strong>this had to be a near-death experience for the once-presumptive nominee.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p><em>Meet the Press</em> moderator Chuck Todd hyped: &ldquo;Let&rsquo;s call it what it is, <strong>she avoided a complete disaster, okay?</strong> A win is a win. <strong>It would have been a disaster if she would have lost</strong>....The Clinton campaign may have won technically, they&#39;re acting like they lost. The Sanders campaign is acting like they won.&rdquo;</p>
