    1.  I don't expect Terry to have too much of a problem, Vanderputz is a bridge too far even for a lot of Republicans I know, given his plans to defy the Iowa Supreme Court's marriage decision  on his first day in office.  He'd be impeached before he got moved into the governor's mansion.
    1.  The probable GOP district nominating convention in the 3rd will be fun for Iowa political nerds. The last one, in the 5th district in 2002, produced Steve King.  Which should tell you these types of events tend to be dominated by christianists and other hard-core wingers.  Before 2002, there hadn't been such a convention since the 60's.  I am sure Leonard is rooting for the teabaggers in that one, in my view state senator and former Urbandale mayor Brad Zaun would be his toughest opponent.  
    1.  The fact that Grassley is being seriously challenged by state Dems is really amazing, given the fact that it has NEVER happened in 30 years.  I never thought I would see it happen before he retired.  

    I judge wisely, as if nothing ever surprise me
