Ambers interviews Branstad
Atlantic blogger extraordinaire Marc Ambinder has 3 minutes with Terry Branstad. Make sure to watch the whole thing. Branstad is not endorsing, but his feelings on the 2008 candidates can be encapsulated at about the 50 second Marc. When asked whether he thinks Republicans are unhappy with the field, this is his response verbatim.
"I think uh Iowans are uh are uh yeah. I think Iowans, uh you know, not everybody, I don't know, there's a lot of candidates..And I think there's a lot of good choices to be made and uh you know, uh..."
Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the field Governor...
Mike Huckabee 10-9
Mitt Romney 3-1
Fred Thompson 9-1
John McCain 9-1
Rudy Giuliani 12-1
Ron Paul 12-1
Duncan Hunter 98-1
