The Washington Post’s Dan Balz has a good piece on how Democrats are going all out for Iowa Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV.)
As I noted weeks ago, Dean isdispatching an army of thousands of Deanie weenies, while Gephardt is relying on his union backers to trudge through the snow.
Some novice campaigners are not used to the Iowa winter:
Kat Woodruff, for example, had seen snow before - from inside an office in Washington, D.C. - but the 24-year-old woman from Long Beach, Calif., had never traipsed through the stuff until she arrived in Iowa to volunteer for Howard Dean.-- PoliPundit
Her impressions of Iowa?
“Ummmm . . . it’s very, very cold,” she said.
“There have been lots of things that I never took into account, like driving in it and getting ice stuck on my car. I’ve fallen on the ice a couple of times.”
Woodruff and two other California natives tried to get to The Des Moines Register’s candidate debate in Johnston.
“We didn’t make it,” she said. “We ended up in a ditch.”
