After the votes are cast, the totals calculated, and delegates selected in the Iowa caucus, Iowans will get what many are saying is some much needed peace and quiet.
"Its just a lot of phone calls, a lot of TV calls, stuff like that. It's nice when it first starts, but everybody at the end, it's ready to be done," said one Iowa resident."You know, Iowa is in the spotlight for today. That's enough. Then they can all go home," commented another Iowa resident.
Iowa voters will get a break, but there will be no rest for candidates with the next caucus 7 days later.
