You had to figure Iowa would get its make-good. And Friday morning, it looks like that will happen. Barack Obama canceled a stop to the Des Moines metro last Thursday, so the campaign said he could visit his sick grandmother in Hawaii. But it looks like he has rescheduled. No official word on the details. But some Blackberry carrying folks were studying the area in front of the Iowa Statehouse Tuesday morning. Can we expect a big outdoor "hurry up and go vote early" rally there on Friday? Update: No, we can't. The rally will be at 11:30am at the Western Gateway Park.
We'll have to see if either half of the McPalin ticket will return. McCain has been to Iowa four times in the last five weeks or so.
