Clothing the Caucus 2008:
Stumping for the candidate

I wrote this great thing, and then I accidentally deleted it, damn! Anyway, insert a joke here about how all the presidential candidates are bringing their entire families out to rally for them - wives, children, siblings, cousins, you name it - something about family values... Sen. Edwards is the only candidate who doing it alone (which is a little sad be D.C. Pleats loves her some Emma and Jack! - and we wish Elizabeth all the best). And then there's Chuck Norris...

Sen. Biden brought nearly his whole family to Iowa, including his sister, Valerie Biden Owens, left, his son, Hunter, his wife Jill (hot second wife No. 1) and his brother Jimmy.

Sen. Obama is joined by his lovely wife Michelle - who almost always looks stunning - at a stop yesterday in Des Moines.

Former Gov. Huckabee and his wife Janet, greet audience members at a early morning rally. (Though she often looks very doughty, I have to say I like the chunky necklace and the eggplant-colored coat.)

Former Sen. Fred Thompson walks with his wife, Jeri (hot second wife No. 2), and their daughter, Hayden, 4, during a campaign stop in West Des Moines.

Sen. Clinton's mother, Dorothy Rodham, and daughter, Chelsea, show support yesterday during a campaign stop in Indianola.

Meanwhile, Bill's in Dubuque...

Sen. McCain and with his wife, Cindy (hot second wife No. 3), in New Hampshire.

Sen. Dodd and his wife Jackie (also a second wife, questionably hot) after a campaign stop at Signatures Grill in Indianola.

And then there's Chuck Norris and his wife stumping for Huckabee.
