Is This Heaven?

WEST DES MOINES, IOWA -- Is this heaven? No, it's Iowa.

Ok, so we borrowed the line from "Field of Dreams" but if you are a political junkie there really is no better place to be this week than right here.

Need proof?

* The woman at the rental car company asked The Fix if he was there for the Straw Poll. (Do we look like that much of a city slicker?)

* Turning on the radio in the rental car, an ad for former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) was playing. Later on the trip from the airport, a radio ad from Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) came on.

* Former Gov. Mike Huckabee's (R-Ark.) campaign RV can be seen from The Fix's hotel room window.

* In a few blocks in downtown Des Moines you pass the headquarters of Sens. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) as well as former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.).

Today we'll sit down with Huckabee for an interview as part of our "PostTalk" interview program. Look for the video of the interview on washingtonpost.com later this afternoon.

Speaking of later this afternoon, The Fix is planning to tag along with Romney to one or two of his "Ask Mitt Anything" forums that the former governor is holding throughout central Iowa. Stay tuned for more reports from the Hawkeye State.
