John Deeth Blog: Finally, an Iowa Caucus Raw Vote Total?

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

With the latest solutions to the Democratic Party's Michigan-Florida
dilemma hinging on the national popular vote totals, here's an
intriguing possibility: Will we finally see the top-secret raw vote
totals from the Iowa caucuses? The most recent plans to divvy up the
delegations from the calendar-violating states factor in the national
popular vote, mostly to make up for Obama not being on the Michigan
ballot. Rep. Bart Stupak, the congressman from the Upper Peninsula,
has one such plan. He's got no horse in the race; as a former John
Edwards supporter, Stupak is an uncommitted superdelegate. He proposes
seating 83 Michigan delegates on a split roughly mirroring the Jan. 15
primary results, assuming that the bulk of the uncommitted vote was
from Obama backers.
