Hillary Country. It’s what the sign said as we rode slowly past Iowan cornfields on our way to the 30th annual Harkin Steak Fry. A gentle gathering of a record 12,000 people, come together in an open field in support of voice, whether it be Hillary, Obama, Richardson, Dodd, Biden or Edwards. They showed up and amidst a quarrelsome inducing commentary of a Republican husband brought forth by duress and a sister in law who marks fifteen hours days of political service more often by the vibration of a cell phone than a good nights sleep, the ring of democracy was clear. And the T-shirts, and the buttons, and the free beer reminded me of our greatest privilege as Americans – the right to vote. So show up come the primaries and vote your heart, whatever your bearings may be, and take your children, for soon enough they will drop their Sponge Bob sippy cup to take up the torch to lead.
