I remember listening to the radio and watching television and being introduced to a woman who was knowledgeable and well spoken. She gave the agricultural news and farm report. Her style made you want to listen. I was reintroduced to Colleen Callahan again this past Friday. Again, I found her knowledgeable and well spoken - on issues much broader than agriculture. The Fish Fry (Walleye) was well attended. The event was quite casual. Lots of jeans and shorts to be seen. The crowd was enthusastic in their support of the candidate. I knew Ms. Callahan had accompanied Ann Veneman (former Secretary of Agriculture) on a trip to Afghanistan and Iraq, but didn't know much concerning her stance on current issues - so it was time to do a little research.

I found video of her canidacy announcement. I watch all four segments and could not find anything she said that I disagreed with.

The links to the video can be found in the side bar on the left at this site:

Wow! I agree with you...I only watched the first segment and need to spend more time listening to the rest. I enjoyed meeting her and her husband at the fish fry fundraiser...they are down home real nice honest people!
