The 99-County Strategy

Almost as many folks live in Florida's Miami-Dade County as live in all of Iowa, but when they're spread between 99 counties, each with its own universe of local electeds from town crier to mayor to county commissioner, visiting all of the Hawkeye State's jurisdictions is no small feat.

Former Senator John Edwards (D), candidate for the presidency, has now been to all the counties Iowa has to offer. According to Politics1.com, Hillary Clinton has so far visited 39; Barack Obama, 59.

By Christmas they'll all be going to sleep with visions of butter cows and corn cobs dancing in their heads.
