Rudy will spend Wednesday in Missouri (Feb 5 state), Friday-Sunday in NH and the 26th-28th in Florida. He returns to Iowa on the 28th. That says it all: make a run at NH but lock down Florida. Iowa is not high on the priority list. For Huckabee and Romney you can imagine a reversed list of priorities– do what ever they can in Iowa, divert some time to NH and the rest is just not at the top of the list. The Iowa expectations game is in full swing: Will Romney declare anything less than 15 pts is a win? Is a close third for Thompson “really” a win? In this regard the voters are a lot more sane than pundits — a win is a win and a win by a big margin is a big win. Everything else is a loss and the magnitude just makes it more embarassing.
