Straight Out of the Cornfield: Thousands rally in Iowa City 4 Obama, Democrats
Excerpted from this post at Straight Out of the Cornfield
Some call Iowa City "a liberal oasis of the Midwest". I once called the town "the progressive palace in the prairie". If last night's Democratic Party rally was any indication, both monikers are appropriate. Thousands of University of Iowa students and Iowa City residents poured into the pedestrian mall in downtown Iowa City Sunday night to see Illinois Senator Barack Obama, Iowa Senator Tom Harkin, Iowa governor Tom Vilsack, and gubernatorial candidate Chet Culver and congressional candidate David Loebsack.
