The Iowa Trap

After making a measured defense of McCain, I’ll offer this criticism. For weeks, I’ve been scratching my head as to why Iowa was one of the few states where McCain was outspending Obama, and I couldn’t figure out why McCain and Palin continued to visit the state, considering: a) McCain trailed by double digits in most polls b) Gore won the state in 2000 and Bush barely won it in 2004 c) Obama spent much of 2007 campaigning there while McCain was in New Hampshire d) Obama launched his candidacy with a win in the caucuses there and e) McCain opposes ethanol subsidies. I thought, maybe the McCain campaign knows something the rest of the political world doesn’t. Well, Fox News called Iowa for Obama within seconds of the polls closing.
