With only a few days before Iowa's first in the nation Presidential caucuses, it is hard to go very far in Iowa without seeing a candidate for President. This afternoon I was in Des Moines and spotted this bus.
Michele Bachmann is a congresswoman from Minnesota. As I got a bit closer to her bus I could see it is the size of a Greyhound bus.
The detail of the painting on the side of this bus is incredible.
For some reason I was surprised that the license plate for the bus was from Montana. It makes no difference but it was the only thing on the bus that seemed out of place.
I did not realize it until I got out of my car that I was standing in front of Michele Bachmann's Iowa headquarters. There were people from the media in front of the building.
I asked the woman with the camera on the tripod if Representative Bachmann would be stepping out soon. She did not know. She had a heavy accent and I guessed she might have been from Germany.
Soon cameras started flashing as these young campaign workers walked out. I felt like something special was happening with all the excitement in the air.
But to our disappointment the candidate was not with them. Oh well ... I turned and saw this pickup that had been used on her 99 county tour across Iowa. Unlike the shiny bus, this truck looked pretty tired and beat up.
But everything is relative. As I was walking back to my car I noticed across the way this sign for another candidate's Iowa headquarters .....
I wish all the candidates the best of luck on Tuesday night. For the most part I do not agree with the Republican party views but I do respect all the candidates for their hard work and dedication.
Thanks for stopping by.
