16,500 people chasing 3000 tickets for Obama' Iowa event tomorrow
Nice! I know you are expecting pictures!
One of my co-workers is a University of Iowa grad and was a campaign worker back in 2008. She got first dibs on some tickets and really wanted to go, but we have a team building (laser-tag) exercise tomorrow and she couldn't get off.

Yes, we are waiting for those great pictures, Misty! Sounds like the hottest ticket in town. Having seen President Obama speak in person at the Human Rights Campaign dinner in October, those who land tickets are really lucky and will never forget the experience.
Speaking fo photos, here's a great one on the day of the Health Care reform bill signing ceremony. Hard to believe they were fighting one another tooth and nail not that long ago.

Love the photo!
Iowa Gov. Chet Culver came out strongly Thursday in support of the federal health care overhaul plan, saying Americans will support the new law once they understand it better. Culver, who later met Obama at the airport in Cedar Rapids, released a fact sheet that claims the federal action would enable 48,600 Iowa small businesses and 187,000 individuals to get assistance in providing and buying health insurance.

Obama said the Prairie Lights bookstore would benefit from his health care overhaul. He said the store has offered coverage to its full-time employees for the past 20 years, but that its premiums shot up by 35 percent last year.
Obama holds up copies of Karl Rove's book and Mitt Romney's book at the Prairie Lights Bookstore during an unscheduled stop in Iowa City.
After mentioning an Iowa City bookstore in his health care speech Thursday, President Barack Obama stuck his head in and spent $37 on kids’ books his daughters.
He also paid for a “Star Wars” pop-up book for the 6-year-old son of White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.
