VILSACK OFFICIALLY KICKS OFF CAMPAIGN
Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack is officially launching his 2008 presidential campaign today at Iowa Wesleyan College.
"Most of all, I am running for president to replace the anxiety of today with the hope of tomorrow and to guarantee every American their birthright: Opportunity," Vilsack said in remarks prepared for the kickoff.
Vilsack's bid is considered to be a very long shot, as he is at the bottom of recent polls and his name-recognition is extremely low outside the state.
