John Deeth Blog: The beret's big-picture predictions

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

As a self-important, self-appointed pundit, I'd be amiss if I didn't
commit and make some predictions. So I've put my thinking beret on and
handicapped Iowa's big races. Iowa Presidential: Obama by at least 12
percent, with negligible third party voting (no candidate above 1
percent). The big mystery is why John McCain threw so much personal
time into Iowa so late in the game. There was no way he could make up
for the months of personal attention Obama showered on the state at
caucus time, and for Iowan's special pride in putting Obama on the
road to the nomination. And a handful of September and October visits
can't make up for two caucus cycles of Screw Iowa contempt for the
caucuses and hostility to ethanol.
