Politically Speaking: Nielsen gives thanks

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
In a commercial that had to be at least 30 seconds, Nielsen thanked people for considering his candidacy or voting for him two weeks ago in the Iowa 5th District congressional race. Nielsen, an independent, explained he recognized people were tired of political ads, but that he wanted to take the step of giving thanks to western Iowans. Three thoughts came to mind — (1) that it had to cost several thousand dollars to craft and air the commercial, (2) that it was a novel idea and a gracious one as well, given that Nielsen placed a distant third in the three-person race, and (3) that he may be running again for Congress in 2008.
