    yes, we tend to be polite, but quiet - not so much.  We are strong, outspoken and intelligent.  She is wonderful example of the intelligent women of Iowa.

    As for Iowa Nice remember this video?

    I loved it because it is the Iowa I know, not the wackos that get the airplay.

    Iowa Strong!! Where are the t-shirts and bumper stickers?  I want one!

      of her letter, and most meaningful:

      Or maybe I’m not forgetting my upbringing at all, come to think of it. Maybe I’m remembering well the lessons of generations of hardworking Iowans who value community, fairness, opportunity and kindness in the face of a mean-spirited policy of greed.

      Michelle Obama was mobbed (by virtually all white crowds) as though she were the Second Coming of the Beatles. They and New Hampshire get a bad rap just because they both have enough of a Republican element to be competitive.
