Back roads to the White House: Greetings from 'Mount Yepsen'
Excerpted from this post at Back roads to the White House
... In Iowa, the Des Moines Register's political guru, David Yepsen, is one of those prolific writers that candidates can't afford to offend. He has been covering the Iowa caucuses for more than a quarter century, and so, as one writer points out, candidates joke about going to Iowa to "pay homage at Mount Yepsen." Today, we got a chance to chip away at him during a LIVE CHAT at Rocky Talk Live with Mark Wolf. ... * Is there room for former Vice President Al Gore in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination? Yepsen says: "No." ... * Who's winning the war of words between former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain? It's Romney, Yepsen says.
