  •  Might I add that demographically, Vilsack (3+ / 0-)

    is in better shape.  A lot of old people who now support Grassley will be pushing up daisies by 2010. Not to sound cold blooded, but let's face it. It's a brave new world out there!

      The Republican Party will never win a presidential election again. =)

      trap for Republicans after the last three elections.  Kerry, the midterms and Obama all drubbed the Republicans with the youth vote.  Unless today's 13-17 year olds are much more Republican than their older siblings (which is pretty doubtful), the Republican Party is fucked long term.  They really need an epic shift to save them.

      Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia. And it went Democratic.

      •  I think this will be the trend in Iowa. (0+ / 0-)

        The state now has more people in it's (Democratic) cities than (Republican) rural areas.  Also, the Iowa GOP is in shambles right now having lost the State House and Senate, and the Governorship three times in a row.  Grassley is the last of the old-school GOP in Iowa, and my bet is that he'll retire.
