Flying High--And a Little Too Far--in Iowa

Barack Obama's schedule this week in Iowa so far included a speech on economic policy in Bettendorf and town hall meetings in Burlington and Muscatine, among other events. It was not supposed to include a stop Tuesday night in the Des Moines airport, but sometimes even in tightly scheduled presidential campaigns, the best-laid travel plans end up with a candidate about 100 miles away from where he needs to be.

"We did overshoot the runway," Obama joked to The Trail's Dan Balz.

The senator eventually made his way to the planned rally, and continued on with his full week in the Hawkeye state.
