Mainstream Iowan: Iowa - Stop Your Giggling About Traveling Tom
Excerpted from this post at Mainstream Iowan
Emboldened by the recent election, Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack has announced he will run for President. A fairly recent poll showed Vilsack in 4th place among presidential hopefuls for Democrats in Iowa. Vilsack supporters seemed to have forgotten about the CIETC scandal unfolded while he was campaigning in New Hampshire. The Vilsack team will not be able to bury the scandals and failures in Iowa on the national level. Just as Dukakis had Willie Horton, look for Ramona Cunningham to become to become a national household word for the Vilsack campaign. Legislators have twice successfully sued Vilsack. Vilsack has restored voting rights for felons and has all but actually encouraged illegal immigration in Iowa which is up 1200%.
