John Deeth Blog: Grassley loses in health care vote

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The WaPo's Chris Cillizza lists the winners and losers from
yesterday's health care vote and among the losers: "Chuck Grassley:
Grassley... took himself out of the negotiations on the bill early on
-- effectively ceding any ability to influence the legislation.
Grassley's pull-out allowed Democrats to paint him as a rank partisan,
a portrayal that won't help him as he runs for reelection next fall."
Attn: Christie Vilsack? (That bandwagon is rolling again...)
Meanwhile, up in Cedar Rapids, the date is set for Nov. 24 and the
candidates are emerging for House District 33: "Norm Sterzenbach, Sr.,
a military veteran who has been a steady presence in county politics
for years and currently serves as the county Democrats' second vice
chairman, is expected to make a bid for the seat." ... No GOP names
yet. With Terry Branstad about set to jump in and knock everyone but
Vander Plaats and Rants out of the governor's race, what legislative
district does Christian Fong live in? Update: I'm told he's in Renee
Schulte's turf.
