Iowa Madness

Huckabee came out of no where to jump to a huge lead. Now, polls show Romney with a slight edge.

Edwards was falling a bit back, now it looks like he's a tad up - but everything's within the margin of error.

While I'm glad '08 will make for great political theater, I can't get past the fact that not only is this insanity, but it's a terrible way to do elections. About 10% of Iowa's population will decide the fate of the Presidential race - and it's a caucus, to make things worse, meaning that not only are votes not held in secret ballot, but the system actually encourages peer pressure and voter manipulation. Iowa madness, indeed.

Also: Be sure to tune into LeftAhead! on a holiday/Iowa/New Hampshire special, Wednesday at 2:30, featuring at least one very special guest.

The Massachusetts caucus may be just as bad!
Our DTC won't let you go unless you're committed to the candidate the Chairman has selected.
