DES MOINES, Iowa Vice President Joe Biden is heading into the belly of Democrats' anti-war opposition, venturing into a politically influential heartland state for the first time since President Barack Obama publicly endorsed a possible military strike on Syria.

Iowa goes down on the chart and then back up again with just one visit.
As Janeane Garofalo said, “it wasn’t hip to protest Clinton”.

Peace through strength. Trust but verify. American exceptionalism.
Preach it, brother Joe.
Good ole’ Tom ‘I was a Viet Nam Combat Pilot with over a Hundred Combat Missions’ Harkin.
Lying son of a bitch never got anywhere near flying a fighter or Vietnam....cargo pilot...pussy.
In my prayers this morning, give crazy Joe a beer and let him talk....
Biden will set 'em straight, they'll be chompin' at the bit to be mercin' out the US Military to fight for Saudi Arabian Princes.
I had been under the impression that the popular Harkin was not running in 2014. Did he change his mind?
My brother says that Liberals want Conservatives to shut up and be silent, but Conservatives should want Liberals to keep on talking.
