DES MOINES, Iowa -- Democrat Barack Obama won over Iowa's butter cow lady.Let's hope Obama has more substance than the butter cows though. I've never recovered from the dashing of my childhood belief that the butter cows were SOLID butter, not just butter smeared on a wire frame.
Norma "Duffy" Lyon, known for carving life-sized cows from butter for 46 years at the Iowa State Fair, said she's backing Obama because he " doesn't believe in a lot of gobbly-gook" and spends time listening to ordinary voters.
Lyon also carved the famed butter cow at the Illinois State Fair every year except one from 1970 through 2001.
