ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was all smiles as she addressed the Democratic Women's Leadership Forum a day after her "long day" at the Benghazi hearing Thursday. "I am absolutely delighted to be here, as some of you may know, I had a pretty long day yesterday," Clinton said referring to hours of testimony before the congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead. Polls conducted Friday show that Clinton has retaken the lead among likely Democratic voters in Iowa, according a Quinnipiac University opinion poll. The survey of 592 likely Democratic participants in the Iowa caucus showed 51 percent backed Clinton and 40 percent were for Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. In testimony that stretched deep into the night, the former secretary of state rejected Republican accusations that she ignored requests for security upgrades in Libya and misinformed the public about the cause of the attack by suspected Islamist militants that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi. Clinton also spoke about Vice President Joe Biden's decision earlier this week not to make a bid for the presidency. "Vice President Joe Biden has been in the trenches with us for years, he fought for the violence against women's act, and so much more," she said. "And I am confident that history isn't finished with Joe Biden," she added.
