The conservative political pundit Robert Novak handicapped today's Iowa caucuses yesterday.
The most likely outcome (for the Republicans) appears to be:
1st Place: Mitt Romney
2nd Place: Mike Huckabee
3rd Place: Fred Thompson
4th Place: John McCain
The Democratic field looks to shake out this way:
1st Place: Barack Obama
2nd Place: John Edwards
3rd Place: Hillary Clinton
4th Place: Bill Richardson
As much as I'm a political junkie, I'm happy that there will be actual voters going out to decide this, rather than hearing ad nauseum pundits and pollsters projecting what will happen. Now we'll get to hear ad nauseum pundits and pollsters explaining what did happen.
And how do I feel about all this?
Your Score: Linus
Wishy-Washy: 62%, Mental: 65%, Physical: 53%
With the outside world being such a big and scary place, everyone needs a source of comfort and security. For Linus this is his blanket - even though Lucy and his grandmother try and break him of the habit. He has an unparalleled knowledge of the Bible and has managed Charlie Brown's baseball team on occasion. When Halloween comes around, make sure your pumpkin patch is sincere.
Anthony makes the correct theological point that Christmas is not over. Apparently, retailers are rejoicing as well.
