I'm sure you've all seen the national news about the Iowa Caucuses. We've been right in the thick of things here in Davenport, Iowa! Examples:
- DAVENPORT, Iowa - Sen. John McCain returned to Iowa on Wednesday to launch a last-minute campaign blitz before tonight's presidential caucuses, buoyed by a new national poll that has him leading the Republican field. (Story from The Arizona Republic)
It was a conciliatory Obama, as well, who trekked east to west from Davenport to Des Moines, rarely mentioning his opponents by name. "I do not want to pit red America against blue America," he told a crowd of nearly 500 Iowans crowded into a community center in Davenport. "I want to be the president of the United States of America." (Story from The Houston Chronicle borrowed from The Los Angeles Times)
The Los Angeles Times did an awesome story about caucusing and why Iowa is first. The reason in a word is.....TRADITION! Iowa started it years ago when no one cared. I remember going to presidential caucuses as far back as 1980 when I was a disillusioned democrat and went to a republican caucus. I ended up being a delegate for Howard Baker. Yeah, I know. He was a long...shot but I have principles! By the time the city-wide convention came along, he was out and I switched to George Bush. Here's a YouTube about his 1980 campaign. I even drove a car with his press secretary in it as we caravaned around the county! The Secret Service even pinned me!
Yes, I know. You say who is that guy with George Bush. And where in the world did he get those glasses?
The beautiful Laura Lang was there as well!
Even our daughter Amy got into the campaign. As you can see, all of the photos were autographed by then Vice-President George Bush. Later, I took this 8 x 10 to a campaign rally for George W. Bush (2000) at which time he autographed it on the left.
Yes, the campaign is very much upon us as the Iowa Caucuses are tonight! The first step in determining who the next President of the United States will be!
