Eastern Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley is pushing his COOL for Fuels plan (knowing which country produces your gas). Juice’s Young Professional of the Year Andrew Allen tells us how he overcame a lot of mistakes as a youth and how he works so others don’t repeat his problems. Rod Roberts, GOP candidate for governor plays “7 things inside my head”. Has he ever lied in office? What grade does he give Governor, Culver on money management? Who is the worst father, Tiger Woods or John Edwards? We covered it all.

We also give the results of our weekly Purple Poll where you tell us what the priority should be for our national leaders now. If health care is a big one for you, you might have special reason to care about these results.
Our question for this week has nothing to do with politics. Who will win the Super Bowl? Text the word, matters, on your cell phone to 72466 to vote. Remember, do it before kickoff Sunday!
Thanks for reading and thanks for listening.
