Tom Vilsack, Mystery Candidate

Tom Vilsack, the mystery man. So says a report on the Republican blog, "Questions, Comments & Insults". It was also picked up the The blog claims a source said Vilsack is looking at running against Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley next year.

On Tuesday, Christie Vilsack told me she is considering running against Grassley. My sources all agree she is the Vilsack in talks about running, not Tom. Either Vilsack would add some spice to the race, as both have a lot of statewide name i.d. But would Tom really give up his U.S. Secretary of Agriculture post, that sources close to him say he really, really enjoys? Not likely, at least according to the people with whom I've talked. The guessing game sure is fun, though, isn't it?

Yeah, this is exactly what we need. Another candidate that is so out of touch with reality, that it isn't even funny.

As a woman.
Conlin & Vilsack has no business in the Senate. There's no-way they'll ever fill Grassley's shoes. 'Just stay home & bake cookies'. Robert Dole quoted.

I think Vilsack better stick to his day job as long as it lasts.
