the fiorina camp issued this statement saying... ' had run into the kids in the botanical gardens and watched the koi with them for a while. i guess the kids must have thought she was pretty neat because then their teachers and parents and the kids all followed carly into the event complete with carly stickers.' beck says he doesn't blame the daycare but rather the fiorinia camp for exposing his son to a topic that he is too young to hear about. des moines is bracing for an even bigger wave of national media as we close in on caucus day. n-b-c, has announced it will set up shop in a familiar place... west end architectural salvage on 9-th street will host n- b-c's national coverage of the iowa caucuses next week. meet the press with chuck todd will kick things off from west end salvage sunday morning... the

"it's like something crazy especially because he was my position, too, so it gives me something to strive for like break his records and stuff." "when you see a guy that has gone above and beyond and he has made it to the nfl from your area, from your school, out of the hallways that you walk, it's crazy because you realize it's obtainable if you want it." and as they develop their personal goals they wish the best for johnson.
