Host Al Hunt: “What kind of shape is Barack Obama in for the 2012 campaign in Iowa?”
Former NBC News President Michael Gartner: “I think he’s in pretty good shape. First of all, people out here have an attachment to him because he was out here. I think people have a fondness for him and I don’t think people blame him for anything that’s wrong in this country, unless — I think the far-right of the Republican Party does, but I don’t think the moderates do, and certainly the Democrats don’t.”
