"Still the One" by Orleans just filled the room here at the Hotel Fort Des Moines. Much like everyone in this room expected, Leonard Boswell has defeated Ed Fallon in the 3rd District Primary. He just gave his short victory speech. Five minutes long. A very interesting thing he mentioned...Fallon didn't call him to congratulate him for his win (and admit his own defeat) before Fallon gave his speech and then Boswell gave his. Boswell said he was surprised he didn't get the call. It is tradition, after all.
I just talked with the Congressman. He said Fallon has now called. BTW, Boswell also talked to me a bit about the Presidential race. He acknowledged the race is "probably" over. And he would love to see Clinton on Obama's ticket.
