John Deeth Blog: Attendance, tactics to shape Democratic district conventions

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

They say half the game is just showing up, and that's true for Iowa's
Democratic congressional district conventions. The other half may be
tactical politics, as supporters of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama
try to deny the other campaign any advantage. The most important
factors in determining how many national delegates Hillary Clinton,
Barack Obama, and, yes, former candidate John Edwards get on Saturday
will be which campaign does the best job of getting its share of the
2,500 delegates to travel to the conventions, and who can quietly cut
the best deals. A district-by-district review of the delegate totals
shows that three of the 29 national delegate seats to be elected
Saturday are up for grabs.
