6:04 am
this? you've made a lifetime out of it. would you believe i love serving iowans?" and many iowans have consistently loved grassley back. since the mid-80's, he's won every re-election with more than 60% of the vote. but-- this woman and her cardboard cutout aim to buck the trend. "senator grassley, we've cast a lot of votes for you. but, your obstruction is responsible for the least effective senate, ever." patty judge has hammered away at one of the weakest spots in grassley's armor, his refusal to schedule confirmation hearings obama's pick to replace late supreme court justice antonin scalia. grassley has the power as chair of the senate judiciary committee. judge says the move is all political-- that grassley is stalling to keep a left- leaning judge from what was a conservative spot on the bench. grassley says he's just keeping up with tradition. "for 30 years, democrats have said when we have republican presidents-- if you have a vacancy in the last year of the presidency-- the people ought to have a voice. the new president ought to fill it." grassley's alluding to these comments made by joe biden in '92. it was an election year and there were whispers a justice was going to retire. "president
6:05 am
and not name a nominee, until after the november elections." like grassley, biden was judiciary chair at the time. he's said his words from that speech have been "mischaracterized". biden points towards the end, when he calls for the senate and president to compromise. "if the president consults and cooperates with the senate or moderates his selections absent consultation, then his nominees may enjoy my support as did justices kennedy and souter." outside of the judicial, grassley's legislative record shows strong support for renewable energies like ethanol and bio-diesel. he championed wind energy tax credits, helping make iowa a na industry. "i didn't have the slightest idea in 1992, when i got that passed, that we'd be generating 31% of our electricity from wind." that's just a taste of the senator's experience on capitol h 41-year-old grassley became one of iowa's u-s representatives. the now 83-year-old would be near 90 at the end of another term. critics have questioned his health. grassley's response... "i ran three miles this morning, i'd invite you to come with me and you can draw your own conclusions." polls have shown the senator with a commanding lead over judge, 18 points according to the latest polls. officials at quinnipiac university say grassley is headed toward an "easy win", with 95% of the gop vote and a 26-point
