    ...but as a former Iowan I was extremely disappointed with him as Gov.  Here's a guy who was on the cover of the NYT for encouraging immigration to Iowa, and a year later he signs an English-only bill.  I mean, he'd be better than Ol' Chuck, but not by much.

    •  Vilsack's hardly Mr. Popularity in Iowa (0+ / 0-)

      Vilsack was not a successful governor in my opinion. He appointed a number of very nasty folks to the Board of Regents of the Regent Universities (all but one of which resigned in a fit of pique once Vilsack was gone). He also showed no real imagination in dealing with the state's financial troubles during his years in office. As a good Dem, I'd like to see Grassley replaced,  but I'd have to talk myself into voting for Vilsack should he be the candidate.
