Tex (David B. Gail) is a member of the Obama for President Finance Committee. The Obamalc was parked near the press platform inside the HYVEE Hall. Obama staff and supporters gathered here Friday and Saturday preparing for the the critically important JJ Dinner. In Iowa this is where the election activities become intense. Check column by Iowa's top political writer (David Yepsen) in the Des Moines Register; Obama Makes Hay at JJ. I always like to check the perspective of an outsider so I read through papers like the UK's THE INDEPENDENT. Read the Leonard Doyle story; Obama starts to punch his weight, leaving Hillary on the defensive.
