It feels little...well, I guess "different" to talk all that Republican presidential politics at Baby Boomers. When the cafe was in its former location in downtown Des Moines, it stood next door to Barack Obama's Iowa campaign headquarters. The Obamas and some of their staffers became big fans of the menu, particularly the chocolate chip cookies. The Obamas even sent for more of those cookies once they moved to the White House. The rest, they say, is history. And, yes, the cookies are really good.
Even if you don't like Brett Baier or don't like politics or don't like Fox or don't like Iowa...here's one reason to watch...see if everyone melts! Seriously. They are doing the show live on the "porch" or "rooftop"...whatever they call it... at the State Historical Building. It's a great shot with the state capitol in the background. But it's nearly 100 degrees today and must be even hotter on that concrete. Never let' em see you sweat, Brett.
P.S. One more random fact...Brett Baier and I were born just 11 days apart.
