Iowa Caucuses

I have always been proud to say that I have voted in every major election and participated in every presidential caucus since I was eighteen and tonight was no different.  Iowans have a unique opportunity to participate in the first in the nation caucuses and tonight there was a new record of voters that turned out.  The caucuses bring a lot to Iowa - being able to shake hands and hear from presidential candidates in your local communities, national media highlighting the state, and lots of political advertising over the TV, radio and phone.  Some of these aspects of having the caucuses Iowans like, and some we can't wait for the day after the caucuses so they end...

I'll be talking about the national media in the state a little later this week.  Until then, here is a video that has just started circulating in Iowa titled Iowa Nice.  I guess you could say this video was created to educate all of the visitors that filtrate Iowa during the caucuses.  Warning, there is some adult language in the video.  Iowa Nice You Tube video
