Worst and Best of Ames

Worst and Best of Straw Poll

Worst thing about Ames Straw Poll: More Iowa Bashing:
Iowa Republicans, in other words, end up having a power that no other state, not even New Hampshire, is granted: two separate opportunities to cull the GOP presidential field. Indeed, we are getting close to the point where no candidate can survive a disappointing showing in Ames, because the media horde will suddenly have only one question: “Are you dropping out?”
The phrase, as the departed David Yepsen used to say, is "two bites at the apple."

Best thing about Ames Straw Poll: More Republican Infighting.

Plus: Two cases that Debt War was an Obama win.
