I know I need to read up and learn some more, but the question in my mind is: Why Iowa?
I find it amazing how much emphasis politicians in a presidential race place on Iowa and New Hampshire for that matter. Why? Are there not bigger states to catch? One theory passed on to me is that the people of Iowa are so dense that the politicians use them to test which lies work the best, then they can fine tune them for the other less obtuse states. Now that is somewhat cruel to say of Iowans. I never visited Iowa. I cannot judge. I still must ask, "Why Iowa?"
