6. As much as I wish it were otherwise...
...after the DMR endorsement, I see a near-certainty that it will be Clinton - Obama - Edwards. :-(

8. Why include options for Biden but not Richardson -- Richardson has 3 times more support in Iowa
as compared to Biden in a poll reported Saturday: "New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson came in fourth with support from 9 percent of those surveyed. He was followed by U.S. Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware with 3 percent."

In New Hampshire, Richardson has 4 times as much support as Biden (8% to 2%).

Biden and Richardson are both long-shots, but Richardson's far, far better positioned to finish fourth (possibly third if Hillary continues to free fall) in Iowa, and Richardson is in a much better position than Biden to benefit in New Hampshire from a better-than-expected finish in Iowa.

If you are looking for a second-tier candidate with great diplomacy experience who has the best (but still slim) chance to break out of the bottom pack, you are making a mistake to pass up Richardson in favor of Biden.

10. If Edwards is still the top 2nd choice candidate
and each of kucinich / dodd / biden / richardson / gravel get less than 15%, then Edwards will win.
Can't say the same for NH or the others.

12. Surprising that OCE is so unpopular, despite being the current order in the polls.
