For a Californian like me who is used to a straightforward party primary, the Iowa caucus process is confusing. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. On Wednesday's Countdown, Keith Olbermann spoke to David Shuster who tries to make sense of the maneuvering and tactics being taken by the candidates to best position themselves in what remains one of the--if not THE--closest race in recent memory.

On a related note, in my hunt for information about the Iowa caucus process, I found this blogger's experience to be revealing. The pundits have been making this a "Hillary is the candidate to beat" story, but in Iowa, this blogger found that Hillary Clinton just hasn't captured the spirit of caucusing as much as Barack Obama has.
