    wish ideologues on the left and right would stop immobilizing government with their constant fight for power

    if you don't think i'm right about this just ask yourself why people like dennis kucinich never have a chance in hell of winning a national election

    and don't give me the nonsense that the media is out to stop the real true heroes of the left.  Obama came out of nowhere to win and he's black.  he won because he was not an ideologue.  the majority of people in this country do not want ideologues to govern.

      Four months before the Iowa Democratic Caucus, Iowa had its first legal same sex marriage.

      It was kinda' big news here in Iowa at the time.

      Iowans saw change happening around them, and along comes a candidate with change as his slogan.

      People here saw change happening, and they had hope, and the message of change resonated well with what was happening here on the ground.

      The destruction of marriage is scorched earth politics.
      They can pry the wedding rings from our cold dead fingers.
