Crossed the Mighty Mississipp'

Friday, June 26, 2009.

A Drive Through the great state of Iowa. Now I'm not sure if there are any particular Iowa highlights but I'm sure glad the state exists. Through the looking glass of a windshield, I'd say Iowa was corn fed, white and mostly middle class, hardly the likely choice to give Obama a shot at the presidency. However, I think it's safe to say that had Obama not won the Iowa caucuses, he would not be our president today and for that reason I'll always be grateful for their political astuteness. The landscape was also far more scenic than we had expected. Crossing the Mississippi River at Dubuque was a highlight.
