    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.

    Shouldn't Obama be in Louisiana making the GOP look detached from current events?

    No. The GOP nominee takes care of that all by himself.

    Iowans don't waver too much from what they believe and we are outspoken about them. We like to argue with ourselves, and anyone else who doesn't believe what we do.

    Convincing an Iowan is generally worth at least another vote in another state due to this. It's almost like people in other states don't talk politics with each other.

    That's my perception... I'm bias... So take it as you will.

    Why is he campaigning right now at all?
    In all other elections, if one of the parties were having their convention, the other party ceased campaigning during that time. I know this is an "unwritten" rule, but it's what's always happened. I guess you'd call it a Courtesy. But then again, Obama doesn't care about that stuff.....

    Sounds more like he knows this is going to be a close election and that every electoral vote is going to be big
