Iowa Caucuses: Backstage: Vilsack on a mission from God?
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Caucuses
U.S. News and World Report's Washington Whispers blog, titled "When God Speaks, Tom Vilsack Listens" is pretty dismissive of Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack's centerpiece campaign issue:
"To tell the truth and shame the devil, newly minted presidential candidate Tom Vilsack's top issue of energy independence is a snoozer. Yes, yes, of course conservation, energy usage, and fuel supplies are superimportant, but it's a tough opener for the outgoing Iowa governor, who's expected to face Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, and other Democratic superstars in 2008. That is, until he cites God's endorsement. It's right there in his church bulletin.
