Price of Politics: Grassley vs. Vilsack

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics

Tom Vilsack's apparent easy U.S. Senate confirmation would take away
one of those potentially "sexy" match ups two years from now: Tom
Vilsack vs. Charles Grassley. But some Iowa democrats aren't giving up
the Vilsack vs. Grassley dream. They'd like Christie Vilsack to get on
the ballot. After Tom's appearance before the Senate Agriculture
Committee, I asked Sen. Grassley about it. He told me expects
democrats to throw everything they have at him because of their strong
2008 election and their current 110,000 voter registration edge in the
state. He doesn't expect a "second-tier" opponent like he had last
time around (Colonel Sanders look-a-like candidate, Art Small, offered
a token contest against Grassley in 2002).
