Celebrity plumber: Iowa is the 'most important place'

Actor James Denton campaigned in Iowa for John Edwards over the weekend.

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) - James Denton, also known as plumber Mike Delfino
on the series 'Desperate Housewives,' said Sunday that Iowa is the "most important place to be right now."

Denton is campaigning in Iowa this weekend with the Edwards' eldest daughter, Cate, on behalf of her father, Sen. John Edwards, D-North Carolina.

"We're here because this is the most important place to be right now," Denton said. "You guys have the great opportunity to narrow down the field for the rest of the country.

"Iowans are very savvy politically," he added.

    When I look for who has endorsed my candidates, I look first at Desperate Housewives.

    What a joke.

    "Iowa" and "important" don't belong in the same sentence.

    Wow...this has come up several times...can you imagine if someone who was actually famous endorsed Edwards? I would be good for 10 of the exact same posts.

    Another Desperate Housewife article for Desperate Candidate, John Edwards?

    I wonder if CNN's official "beating the dead horse" has moved from Larry Craig to the endorsement of James Denton for John Edwards?
