    With Iowa caucuses just a few days away, who do you think will come in first, second, and third on both sides?

    That is amazing insight. You would be good on CNN's instant election coverage.

    My Iowa cauci predictions:


    Democrats:

    Clinton 36%
    Obama 33%
    Edwards 31%

    I don't see any other Democrat making the 15% threshold rule that the Democrats use.


    Republicans:

    Romney 28%
    Huckabee 25%
    McCain 15%
    Guiliani 12%
    Thompson 9%
    Paul 7%
    Hunter 4%

    The Republicans use a secret ballot straw poll.

    Actually, I think Ken has too much confidence. I would say Paul will get 3 - 5 % of the vote

    Actually, I don't have much confidence in the American people, including Republicans, to vote for limited government in 2008. Of course, I would be quite happy to be proven wrong about this. :)

    It is hard to differ with your dem picks. It is so tight, anything could happen. My rep picks are based on my belief Paul will be a surprise.

    You are in worst shape that I thought. I wonder if Ron Paul feels that way.

    I fail to see why you would wonder what Ron Paul thinks based on what I think.

    Actually, I am doing pretty well after my mother-in-law's death yesterday. My wife is having a real hard time having been the primary caregiver for her mother for the past five years but I have faith that the Lord will see us all through this time of transition.

    Democrat

    1- Barak Obama/Hillary Clinton (too close to call)
    2-
    3- Edwards

    Republican

    1- Huckabee
    2- Romney
    3- McCain

    At the end of the day I still think this race is going to come down to Rudy v. Hillary. The other candidates just don't have the money or the resources to run national campaigns.
