Krusty Konservative: A Republican comeback? Maybe...
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
Michael Jordon did it, as did Lance Armstrong, Mario Andretti, and
Brett Farve seems to do it on a yearly basis. They retire, and walk
away from the game or sport in which they are dominate only to see
those who try to fill their shoes fail miserably. If you want to
understand why Republicans in Iowa don't have a long list of potential
gubernatorial candidates, or even future legislative leaders, you need
look no further than the long list of excellent legislators who have
walked away, or sought higher office. People like Sandy Greiner. Chuck
Larson, Jr., Jeff Lamberti, Steve Sukup, Willard Jenkins, Bill Dix,
Jeff Elgin, Kitty Rehberg, Libby Jacobs, Paul Pate, Bill Schickel,
Chuck Gipp, Brent Siegrist, and Dan Boddicker. And that's just the
folks off the top of my head.
