    Boswell SERIOUSLY under performed with Obama voters. Obama won the district, and Boswell underperformed by ~ 35,000 votes.

    The problem was the Boswell didn't get near the margin he needed in DM, and lost Council Bluffs, the only other viable D stronghold in the district.

    The Iowa DP needs to nominate someone from the DM area who can run up a huge margin in Polk County and poach some votes in Dallas County, as well as be acceptable for those in C. Bluffs.

    Latham portrayed Boswell as a career poli, which in actuality, better fits Latham. The medicare lie also got alot of traction here, and Boswell din't agressively counter attack. This is the type of race where the SuperPac/Citizens United dollars made a BIG difference. 3 or 4 to 1 in ads over the last 2-3 weeks.

    Not worth the effort. The only reason Vilsack got close was name recognition. It's a lost cause, I'm sad to say. The best hope here is that King runs for senate and gets his ass handed to him by Harkin/Braley/T Vilsack.

    WTF!?!?!?! When did I move to the Republic of Gilead?!
