“Little Grassley” has grown into a “Mighty Nussle”

Former Iowa Congressman/2006 Iowa GOP gubernatorial nominee Jim Nussle appeared before a U.S. Senate committee today as part of his confirmation process as President Bush’s nominee to head the OMB.  Both of Iowa’s senators were there to give glowing introductions.  You can listen to Grassley, followed by Harkin, followed by Nussle by clicking on the audio link at the bottom of the Radio Iowa story.  The mp3 is about 20 minutes long.

In it, you’ll hear Grassley joking about Nussle being a "Little Grassley" and then Senator Joe Lieberman adding that "this ‘Little Grassley’ has grown into a ‘Mighty Nussle.’"
