Iowa: Anyone but Obama or Hillary, Please!

"We'll shovel your walk, we'll baby-sit your kids," said Clinton campaign manager Terry McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, on MSNBC.

It's lucky that Iowa is a caucus, because last time I looked shoveling a walk or baby-sitting were both valuable, well-paid jobs. Effectively, Hillary Clinton's campaign is bribing voters to show up to support her in the Iowa caucuses. I don't care for that, do you? It's not like a trip to Tahiti, that's for sure, but I think all we are talking about here is the price. You want a government like this?

And Obama? I would say while he's a good, maybe even a great public speaker, but that's about it. Two years ago today all the government experience Barack had was as a State Senator in Illinois. Doing business in downstate Springfield Cook County Democrat Machine style gives him ZERO experience in principled government. Since he's been missing most of the votes in DC since he started campaigning for President (shortly after being sworn-in as a US Senator), you would have to have to be deaf, dumb and blind to think he's ready to be a chief executive.

But enough for comments from Illinois. We are taking you direct to Iowa via the iowas newz liter blog, for a delightfully entertaining song and comment on Hillary's campaign and on Obama's campaign, too. Hope you enjoy it!

Our blogger pal, the B ackyard Conservative, has driven over to Iowa to give Mitt Romney's campaign a hand. she also has several reports.

Adding to your list of "Anyone But......" don't forget Huckabee, Romney and Thompson (who is rumored to drop out of the race if he places less than 3rd in Iowa, and endorse McCain).

I have found only two people who find any candidate appealing--one is a Democrat, the other a Republican, and I have asked a lot of people. This isn't so good.
