Iowa Defense Alliance: Trouble in paradise: When egos collide

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

A few weeks ago we discussed Tom Vilsack and the false hype regarding
his potential appointment to lead the US Department of Agriculture
which you can read here. At the time we contemplated that it was
really Vilsack or someone close to him that had created the false
hype. Now some revelations have caused me to conclude that Vilsack
most likely did not have anything to do with the rumors that claimed
he was likely to be appointed by Obama. Instead I now believe that it
was Tom Harkin or someone on his staff that leaked this information.
In an article in today's Des Moines Register Iowa's Democratic Senator
Tom Harkin takes exception with President-elect Barack Obama. Harkin
is upset because Obama and his staff have failed to seek advice from
Congressional Democrats.
