I don’t know how much TV coverage of the Iowa caucuses I’ll have time to watch tonight, never mind how much I’ll be able to blog about them. Maybe quite a bit, maybe very little; it really depends on Loyette’s and Becky’s schedules, which are nigh impossible to predict in advance. Anyway, just in case I don’t end up blogging much at all, I figured I’d post an Iowa thread now, so y’all can comment on any news that may break.
In the mean time, what are your predictions? My money’s on Obama winning a squeaky-close three-way race that really decides nothing, and Huckabee edging Romney with McCain third. But I haven’t been following events closely for the last few days (obviously), so take those predictions with several large grains of salt.
Speaking of salt grains, give any pre-caucus “entrance polls” the grain-of-salt treatment as well. The arcane caucus rules, particularly on the Democratic side, mean that it’s a very chancy proposition trying to predict the outcome of such close, multi-candidate races based on polls, even polls taken mere minutes before the voting. We really just have to wait and see what the actual votes say.
