The 2008 Presidential field is getting crowded. Today, Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack officially announced his candidacy:
MOUNT PLEASANT, Iowa, Nov. 30 — Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack (D) formally launched his campaign for the White House here this morning with a jab at the leadership of President Bush, a warning that America’s way of life is threatened and a promise to restore a sense of community to the nation.
“America needs a president who builds and creates, who makes our country more secure, who is bold and has the courage to create change,” Vilsack told a home-town crowd of supporters. “I will be that president.”
Of course, how he thinks he can do any of that is another question.
