Obviously 2008 could be different but I thought this would help paint a picture of the potential caucus goer.

2. I think Obama will do well in the caucus...
but I do think his lack of foreign experience will hurt him slightly. I really like Obama and am hoping to see him do well in Iowa.

3. Especially after insulting 72%
72% of the past caucus goers being baby boomers. At least the media is spinning his comments as an insult to baby boomers. I also question Iowans capacity to support anybody of any color other than white. I hope they can prove me wrong.
