    BTW, my comment regarding "conservative Christians" was not an intended slight.  I am a very liberal Christian, myself.  But my views in many areas are vastly different from my conservative Christian friends.  [I'm in a "purple turned red state," so conservative is VERY conservative around here.]

    Senator Harkin is one of my favorite Senators, too.  I know you can't really "replace him."  I just hope for everyone's sake, that you don't get stuck with a "off-the-charts" corporatist, LOL!  The Senate seems to be "chock-full" of them already.

    At any rate, wish you and Iowa, all the best of luck finding a suitable Dem (hopefully) Senator.

      Whoever we get, they are sure to be well and truly bought by the ag industry. The hope then is to find someone who takes time out from fighting for more farm subsidies to fight for the little people here and there.
