On Monday, John and I arrived, along with our children, Emma Claire and Jack, in Des Moines, Iowa for the "Fighting for One America" Iowa bus tour.   In just the last two and a half days we have already covered a lot of ground and spoken to a lot of wonderful people as we've traveled from town to town. We have hit some small places -- Ida Grove for instance -- and bigger towns -- Mason City for example, but one thing doesn't change: the people of Iowa want change in Washington.

We still have many more stops before the tour ends on Sunday, but since we have some time before our next event in Waverly, I thought it would be nice to drop by and chat with you.

If you cannot make it out to see us in person, you can follow the tour online at, but for now, let's just chat.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
