I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the next president of the United States won’t be Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack.
While he’s the first Democrat to officially declare his candidacy, presidential nominations don’t have much to do with your place in line.
A poll of Democrats by Opinion Research Corp. rates Vilsack dead last in a field of 10 potential candidates. First and second, of course, are Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Third and fourth are Al Gore (sigh) and former Sen. John Edwards.
In Vilsack’s favor: He’s got good hair and he’s well-liked in Iowa, whose caucuses traditionally launch the nominating season.
