DES MOINES, IA — A fun but draining day in Des Moines. We checked in with Professor Dennis Goldford of Drake University to talk about the nuts and bolts of Iowa’s caucus system, then spent the rest of the day at the convention center in downtown Des Moines talking with journalists about the media’s role in the caucus process. Just posted my interview with Tim Russert of NBC News.

Stay tuned for a longish video piece the morning after the votes are counted. For now, we’ll be posting shorter vids here. In the meantime, check out a few photos from the day’s activities.
