  •  Bruce Braley would be our best recruit (5+ / 0-)

    I hope he gets in quickly to keep others (read either  Vilsack) from getting in.  Also he could scare out top GOP recruits as well as he really is the strongest Dem.  Also Grassley will be 83 come 2016 when he has to run again, I wonder if the top GOP Rep. Latham would pass on running now, figuring he'd be the heir apparent to Grassley.  

    I can't see Tom Vilsack leaving the cabinet - especially as Secretary of Agriculture which is very important to Iowa.

    •  Interesting theory on Latham (4+ / 0-)

      Given Grassley is high on the potential retirement list for 2016, I wonder if Latham may indeed let King run and lose this time just to get him out of the way and then have a clear shot for 2016 if Grassley decides to go gracefully into the night. It does make more sense then giving up his House seat for an uphill primary battle against King.

    •  He has been weak on gun rights (0+ / 0-)

      He will have a hard time overcoming that with gun control back on the national stage.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
