The Democratic race could lead to a brokered convention if this keeps up.

I got it half right - Dodd is out, but people noticed :-)

Reports of the McCain campaign's life have been greatly exaggerated. The press overstated his popularity in 2000, and they did it again this year. His surge got him only three percentage points ahead of Ron Paul, whose followers are no doubt in full party mode over their candidate gaining triple the votes earned by Rudy Giuliani.

Fred Thompson got in third place without even campaigning - he will be a force to be reckoned with it when and if he ever comes out of the chute.

Update: Iowahawk posted live bloggage of the cauci. Also, check out his conventional wisdom on the candidates.
