Photo Essay: Iowa, January 2nd

@ Drake

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. (more…)

Photo Essay: Des Moines Register Debates


Good Friday morning to you. Team Why Tuesday? is thawing off after a two-day trip to Iowa for the Des Moines Register presidential debates. Thomas Macker, our Director of Photography, documented both our arrival in Johnston, Iowa by horse-drawn carriage, and general goings on at the Wednesday and Thursday at the Republican and Democratic debates, respectively.

Special thanks to the Erin Crawford of the Des Moines Register, Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic, Kate Phillips of the New York Times, Brian Lehrer of WNYC, Kevin Roderick of LAObserved, and Josh Levy of TechPresident for spreading the word about the fact that we showed up by horse-drawn carriage and why we did so. To hear me explain what we were doing in Iowa, listen to some or all of the 15-minute segment I did with Brian Lehrer on NPR’s WNYC Wednesday morning from Iowa.

Enjoy the photos. They’re in chronological order. Video to come soon. (more…)

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
