Price of Politics, Etc.: Christie Vilsack, mystery candidate?

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.

Tuesday morning former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack told reporters to ask
his wife is she is running against Republican Senator Chuck Grassley.
You will recall last month on Iowa Public Television's "Iowa Press",
Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Michael Kiernan said he had a mystery
candidate to run against Grassley and that Grassley would be in for
the "race of his life". So I went to Iowa State University where
Christie Vilsack had a schedule appearance. Several ISU professors had
designed a jacket for her to wear to the World Food Prize's dinner
Thursday night in Des Moines. It is covered in tomatoes. Christie
Vilsack told me she has been talking to people about running. She said
she has no timetable. Several things stood out from our interview. She
mentioned she was "well-qualified" to run (she has never held public
office before).
