KWQC-TV in Davenport reported Vilsack told its reporter in an exclusive interview today that he was running for president. The phone call I got after news of that story almost made me lose my Perkin’s brunch (ever tried that twinberry syrup there?). Of course, I burned up my cellphone trying to find out what was going on.
As it turned out, all the Governor said was that he was “seriously thinking” about running. As you know, that’s been his answer for the last few months. Phewh! Of course, in the end, what the station reported may not be so wrong after all. Stay tuned.
