More PBR than politics at O'Malley Carl's stop

"We cannot be this dissatisfied with our gridlocked national politics and an economy where we're all working harder but not getting ahead and think that a resort to failed ideologies or old names is going to move us forward," he said. "The people of Iowa know that new leadership is important."

Many in the audience sang along as O'Malley played Passenger's "Scare Away the Dark," a song that's one in a rotation that the former governor regularly sings on the campaign trail. Sam Hagen, 21, a Minnesota native who's studying music education at Drake University, was impressed by former governor's energetic speech and guitar playing though he's still undecided on whether he will caucus for any candidate.

"It shows that he supports the fine arts," said Hagen, who came to the event with other Drake students. "And that's really important to all of us."

Erin Besser, 21, a Des Moines native and also a Drake music student, said she's still deciding who to support, but is leaning toward O'Malley because of his stances on providing debt-free college education. Besser said that Sanders' plan to provide free public college education to students doesn't resonate much with her because Drake is a private school.'
