I see where the President is again in Iowa. Obama hits the college circuit in Iowa, Colo. - News from USA TODAY He must be really confident to be going after the State with 6 electoral votes. One would think he'd be in the more electorally rich states. This is a good sign; both his spending time in Iowa and speaking of an increase in college aid and Pell Grants. Speaks to the demographics that support him and are great for the future of the country.
