"Yuge" fan bemoans absence of Scott Walker in Iowa caucuses

Hank Miller, farmer, as quoted in Scott Walker's presidential exit still felt in Iowa.  (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel 1/30/2016)
Long after Scott Walker pulled the plug on his presidential bid, you can still find some Iowa Republicans who are sorry to see him gone.

Seems to me we need a song of yearning to close this post.

#1 for 3 weeks in January 1978.  The song -- a definitive guilty pleasure -- spent an impressive 32 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100.  Not quite a one-hit wonder; the group had a follow-up single that reached the top 10.  (2 weeks at #10.)

Scott Walker was 10 years old at the time.
