Kaine Spends a Cold Day in Iowa With Obama

Anita Kumar

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, one of Barack Obama's national co-chairmen, said today that the Illinois senator and presidential hopeful feels like there is "real good momentum" leading up to the Iowa caucuses.

Kaine (D) spent New Year's Day with Obama in Sioux City and Council Bluffs, where more than 1,000 supporters turned out for each event on a day that had temperatures in the single digits.

"It's so close and it's all about turnout and getting folks excited,'' Kaine said. "From what I could tell yesterday, people are pretty excited."

Kaine traveled to South Carolina the weekend before Christmas to campaign for Obama but was not able to go to Iowa as he had planned because of a snow storm. Kaine spent a weekend in Iowa in November.

The Iowa Caucus is quite the farce. I wish y'all at the WaPo would be a little critical of the process in Iowa. Obama might pull off a victory, but why does Iowa get so much influence?

Kaine should stay in Iowa and resign from VA. Is this junket on the backs of Virginia Taxpayers?
