Radio Iowa: Vilsack and the Polk County edge

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

About 200 people crowded into a room at the back of the Dos Rios
restaurant in downtown Des Moines after work today, at the invitation
of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign. Some of
the people in the room had supported Obama in the Caucuses, but the
event was for the rest -- those who had been keen supporters of other
candidates. The main focus was on carrying Polk County by a wide
margin. Joe Kennedy, Obama's regional field director for Polk County,
was the first to introduce himself to the crowd. Jackie Norris,
Obama's state director, was next. Norris began by praising those in
the room who had backed other candidates. "We all worked our hearts
out," Norris said of the Caucus campaign, ending with a plea for
precinct-level organizing for Obama.
