The Real Sporer: Thompson (Tommy) in West Des Moines..............

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer
........... demonstrated what appears to [be] caucus strength in the most traditional of ways. ... Team Tommy generated a turn out of around 100 almost entirely new faces. Having attended several Tommy events it appears that he has a great ability to work a crowd, very dynamic (although uncharacteristically passive in the recent mockumentary on MSNBC) and very likeable. Tommy and Mike Huckabee continue to front run for the Dale Carnegie Cup. Reliable and unbiased sources travelling with Tommy confirmed pretty much the same result for his other recent Iowa events. Tommy certainly is working this state like his life depends on it. ... Tommy Thompson is rolling out a powerful ground game. More of a 2000 Rams flexible approach than the '72 Dolphins ground pounders but pretty darn good none the less. Twenty five percent could win the blue ribbon next January so the affable Badger is not all that long of a shot.
