Eastern Iowa Conservative: Does Iowa need Terry Branstad?

Excerpted from this post at Eastern Iowa Conservative

The buzz around the Iowa political scene the past few days is that
former four-term Governor Terry Branstad is mulling another run for
Governor. The immediate question that comes to my mind is, are we
really at that point? I mean no disrespect to the former Governor, but
for a party desperately trying to overhaul it's image as being current
and relevant this just seems like going back to the well to me. A lot
has changed over the last 15 years since Branstad last ran for
Governor. For starters, the internet is much more crucial to launching
a campaign as news came out today that the former Cyclone Conservative
and Sen. McKinley aide Don McDowell registered the
'branstadforgoveror.com' domain.
