Hawkeye Review: The worst job in Iowa politics...
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review
It's day one for John Frew today. Welcome to our nightmare...
Governor Culver's new Chief of Staff will have his hands full to say
the least. Back in July when the appointment was announced, Chet
Culver had formidable challenges ahead and in just weeks since, our
chief of state has been rocked with a series of significant political
and administrative setbacks. ... In only 8 months, Chet Culver's
approval rating has plummeted by 37%. Even Democrats are getting
tired of his incompetence and COS (Chief of Staff) Frew won't have the
luxury of a honeymoon in his new position. In fact, many Iowans would
vote to take our governor to "divorce court" if such an option were
available to us right now. Although John Frew is considered a
political "heavyweight" by senior party officials, I'm not sure he can
reverse the damage path and prevent the inevitable consequences that
lie ahead for the Governor.
