The Usual Brilliance from Kos
Heheh, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga thinks Barack Obama is a cinch
to win the Democratic nomination. I've been working up a few scenarios given the primary calendar (which isn't set in stone, with states like California looking to move up), and really, it would be Obama's race to lose.
Iowa is right next door to Obama's Illinois, and while Vilsack will win it (getting no boost out of it), the race for second-place will determine the "true" winner. Hillary, for now, appears to be bypassing Iowa. So the early battle would appear to be between Edwards and Obama. A 2-3 finish for these guys, in any order, leaves them in good shape moving forward.
The only thing that could derail an Obama coronation? Al Gore, the great white hope!
