McSame Needs More Than Iowa!

"McCain Calls Iowa Crucial to Victory" (DMRegister) exhorting Iowans.... "to defy polls showing the Republican presidential nominee trailing in the state, and warned that Democrat Barack Obama had become overconfident. 'Now, he’s measuring the drapes. He’s planned his first address to the nation, before the election,' McCain said at a rally in Cedar Falls. 'I guess I’m kind of old-fashioned about these things. I prefer to let the voters weigh in before presuming the outcome.' ”

Where does he get this stuff?

It's hard to believe that this type of shallow campaign rhetoric ever worked in Iowa. But of course it did. In 2000 and 2004.

But not this time.

Anyone paying even half-attention knows that this time around it's different. Obama is constantly warning about not getting overconfident. Obama's rallying cry is.... "Remember New Hampshire".... where Hillary, who was down in the polls whooped Obama in the primaries.

He's taking nothing for granted in Iowa.... Obama has out-organized McCain and actively getting-out-the-vote.

Maybe McSame forgot that it was Iowa's "Yes we can" voters looking for change who launched Obama's winning nomination bid. They're proud of their cruical role in his success and looking ahead.

Yes Iowa can, did and will again.
