Why Bother With Iowa and New Mexico?
by

RealClearPolitics has Obama up by 12.5 points in Iowa and more than 8 points in New Mexico.

Today, the Politico reports:

Offered a chance to respond to the suggestion that the McCain campaign is awash in defeatism, a McCain official delivered a decidedly measured appraisal: “We have a real chance in Pennsylvania. We are in trouble in Colorado, Nevada and Virginia. We have lost Iowa and New Mexico. We are OK in Missouri, Ohio and Florida. Our voter intensity is good, and we can match their buy dollar for dollar starting today till the election. It’s a long shot, but it’s worth fighting for.”

Yet tomorrow — one of the last Saturdays before the election — where will McCain and Palin be campaigning? Yep, Iowa and New Mexico. When this campaign is over and we go through all the recriminations, one thing that I’ll be most curious about is why the heck the McCain campaign focused so much attention on Iowa given his fierce opposition to ethanol subsidies and the fact that he didn’t seriously contest the caucuses in the state, which first launched Obama into contention. I never spoke to one smart political observer who thought McCain had a shot of winning the state, so I don’t know why the ticket is still campaigning here at this late of a date.
