Biden campaign: Announces 10th Iowa legislative endorsement
:toast:

Des Moines, IA (September 27th, 2007) - Crediting Sen. Biden's successful passage of his Iraq federalism plan yesterday in the U.S. Senate as the "deciding factor", the Biden Campaign today unveiled its 10th state legislative endorsement with Rep. Roger Thomas of Elkader. Rep. Thomas joins a chorus of nine other state legislators who look to Sen. Biden's plan for Iraq as the only credible option to begin to bring our troops home without leaving chaos behind.

"Sen. Biden showed true Presidential leadership yesterday with the passage of his Iraq amendment" said Rep. Thomas. "He worked with members of both parties in building a consensus, ultimately giving them the confidence to do the right thing and begin to shift the direction of U.S. policy in Iraq. I know the people of Iowa respect that kind of Presidential leadership."

"In the time I've spent with Sen. Biden, I've been fortunate to get to know him on a personal level - and continue to be moved by his determination, caring personality and boundless knowledge of the key issues of the day. As chair of the Economic Growth Committee here in the state, I believe we need a president who has a deep understanding of the real economic circumstances most Americans are confronting." Thomas continued.

This latest endorsement comes just three days after the Biden Campaign unveiled Representative Polly Butka of Clinton, the highest ranking female elected official in the state behind the Lieutenant Governor.

2. "Biden showed true Presidential leadership". He always does.
:woohoo:

LEADERSHIP -- the lack of which we've all been bemoaning. He is SO who we need!

Well-deserved high praise. Very well deserved.

and then half the U.S. Senate will follow.

7. His ability to cross the aisle with comfort and receive respect is very
important and recognized by both sides. Let's face it, the guy could charm the birds out of the trees, and I really like him. He could be the "dark horse" in this race and I would be very happy to see it.

8. I think voters are ready for a "dark horse"
The frontrunners are falling a little short of expectations at this point.

11. Iowa is make or break for Biden
It appears Biden is sneaking up on them and impressing the hell outa them. The people want answers not vague ideas.

Are there any Iowans for Biden on here? Would love their insight/opinion.
