Since a lot of you have asked how the recent Clinton-Obama feud is playing out on the ground here in Iowa, let me offer one more post on the subject before moving on to other things.Howie P.S.: I spent several days in Iowa in 2004 around the caucus there and I can tell you nobody knows for what sure what the hell is going to happen. They take their time to decide in Iowa, I'll say that.
At the risk of triangulating, I think you could make a case that it would be awfully nice to have a leader who is both practiced and intuitive. But this question of where leadership comes from is a worthy one for people to think about. A presidential campaign can certainly turn on a lot less ennobling issues — like, say, the meaning of Mormonism, or a weird middle name.
