    1. We traveled halfway across the country to witness the last Iowa Caucus!

    4. Mitt Romney attempts to save his obituary from the ravages of the Trump era during Senate impeachment vote.

    5. We now grant ABC all future Dem Debates.  That’s enough flying graphics and Wolf Blitzer for this cycle.
