From NBC's Carrie Dann
"If I weren't so darned wonderful myself, I'd be supporting Joe." So reads a new Biden print ad in seven papers here in Iowa, including the Des Moines Register and Quad City Times.
The full-page ad (.pdf) features quotes from all six of his Democratic rivals (sans Kucinich) agreeing with the Delaware senator. This is Biden's first print ad in the state. Per his website, the buy required about $50,000 in fundraising to get placed. The web video montage, which birthed the idea, now has 42,000 hits on YouTube.
