Iowa Blogging (UPDATE)

I'm in gray and snowy Des Moines, Iowa, along with a healthy contingent of the Washington press corps, where most of us are stalking the elusive beast known as the "prospective Republican presidential candidate." These proud creatures will gather at tonight's Faith and Freedom Coalition Presidential Forum, which is the first big cattle call for presidential hopefuls. Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and a freshly sprung Buddy Roemer are the expected speakers. Ron Paul, who's in Iowa today, will not be at the Faith and Freedom forum (though I'm told he was invited). I'm going to try to catch up with Paul beforehand. Later tonight, I'll write up the forum for the blog, so I hope you'll check back. (Might tweet, too, though it's an f*ing pain on my Droid: @JoshuaGreen.)

LATE-BREAKING: Per @PeterHambyCNN, Donald Trump's plane spotted at Des Moines Airport, so maybe tonight's forum will have a sixth. Bet he and Newt will have plenty to talk about.
