You might think my Hillary prediction is simple hope and ignoring the pro-Obama media tilt, and the DMR, Zogby and other final polls showing a second and third place finish, right? Well here's why Hillary is poised for a:
1. Hillary has the best Iowa operatives working for her especially Tereas Vilman
2. I think the DMR's assumptions are wrong, and then Zogby and others copied them for cover.
November 2004 final Iowa election poll:
Zogby 50 45 for Kerry
DMR 48 45 for Kerry
Everyone, and I mean everyone from the media, to the other candidates are just hoping for an Obama win so this race can continue. But the people of Iowa will have a different conclusion.
