Bleeding Heartland: Tom Vilsack's disappointing campaign

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
... Vilsack talked a good game when he was running for president. I liked what he said about a lot of issues, including Iraq. The joke in my circle of friends was that Vilsack was sounding a lot better as a presidential candidate than he had as governor. I settled on Edwards as a candidate, but a few progressives I know, including my husband, were considering Vilsack. ... If his friendship with the Clintons and ambition for the VP slot or a cabinet post are that important, then he shouldn't have wasted other people's time and money on his presidential bid. Everyone has known for a long time that Hillary was running for president. Vilsack just wasn't serious about taking her on, and it makes all of his presidential campaign rhetoric--especially on Iraq--look empty. Reminds me of why I voted for Mark McCormick in the 1998 gubernatorial primary.
