My Iowa Caucus Predictions

UPDATE: my reaction to the Iowa caucus results are HERE.

I was going to do an overly-verbose post on my predictions for the Iowa caucus results this evening -- but being my first day back at work after a 10-day holiday, I actually had some work to do. Needless to say, my overly-verbose post never happened.

So, here -- for your viewing/reading pleasure -- is the quick 'n' dirty...

1. Mitt Romney
2. Ron Paul
3. Michele Bachmann (I KNOW -- crazy, right?)
4. Rick Santorum
5. Newt Gingrich
6. Rick Perry
7. Jon Huntman

I went back and forth between Romney and Paul for the top spot -- but ultimately I think Romney will win it. That isn't to say that a second-place finish isn't a win for Ron Paul. It is.

Bachmann won the Ames straw poll way back when -- and I think that will still matter for caucus-goers.

Santorum has been picking up steam, but -- as I mention earlier -- that won't matter much.

I'll be watching the result tonight, and will have more tomorrow.
