John Deeth Blog: Well, I guess Vilsack's plans changed

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

AP and the Reg are now reporting that Tom Vilsack gets named Secretary
of Agriculture tomorrow. Iowa's other ag secretaries, the Henry
Wallaces, had deep deep ag roots with Wallace's Farmer and Pioneer,
but what is there on the Vilsack CV of trial law and governance that
says "Ag" other than "Iowa"? So does that mean that the Grassley 48,
Vilsack 44 poll last week was for nothing? Or is he taking the Mike
Johanns route to the Senate: a brief stint in the cabinet to boost the
resume, then back home to run? (Of course, Johanns was aided by an
open seat, as opposed to taking on a 30-year incumbent...)
