One quick thought

As I watch the preparations and "pre-game shows" for today's presidential inauguration with breakfast this morning, I'm realizing that it has already been one year since the Iowa presidential caucuses, one year since Howard Dean's infamous "I have a scream" speech. Living in Iowa during those caucuses was an valued experience for me, one I will never forget. It reaffirmed my growing interest in the political process (one that I have probably burdened my friends - and other readers of this blog - with), and my desire to stay informed about what goes on in this country. As graduation looms closer for me, I anticipate leaving Iowa. But I would love to be back in 2007 for the 2008 caucuses.
