I'm very interested in the Iowa Caucuses this year(beginning in less than 10 minutes). It has been a really long time since the race has been this wide open (i.e. no President seeking reelection, No Vice President seeking the nomination). While I like how involved many of the people in Iowa are, I don't like that one state (two if you include New Hampshire) shapes the Presidential election more than any other. While winning Iowa doesn't guarantee the nomination (see Howard Dean) the boost received in the national polls and spotlight after winning such a state is priceless for candidates with lesser known profiles (the reason Romney and Huckabee have focused so strongly on Iowa).
I won't tell you who I'm pulling for (because I'm not entirely sure myself) but I hope that Iowa starts a trend of increased voter participation throughout the primary season. May the best candidate win (excepting Hilary, of course)!
**Update** It looks like congratulations are in order for Huckabee and Obama. Now onto New Hampshire!
