President Obama pardons turkeys from Iowa this Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

Today, two Iowa birds share the spotlight in the nation's capital.

Each year, the president is given two turkeys before Thanksgiving and he pardons one.

Last year, it was a 40-pound bird named Abe, formally saved from the thanksgiving table.

This year, the two candidates are from Iowa.
