Ron Paul and Iowa.

Because the media doesn't really care about Ron Paul... Here is a good speech. He is so cheery, that it could almost make you sick... I am glad to hear that they guy is moving on to other states and primaries. After all, he presents a point of view that the country needs to seriously consider. Even if he doesn't get elected, he gets good ideas, that should be thought about, out there. In Iowa, he did more than 2x as well as he did 4 years ago; which is saying something!

By the way, if you look in the background,  of the video, you will see Rand Paul. If there was a call option (say, on intrade) where I could buy the chance that he will run for President in the near future (say, a decade) and stand a chance of winning, I would certainly be interested.. It seems like a near inevitability to me...

Ron Paul has some good things to say about economic policy, but, and it's big but, his foreign policy is atrocious. That alone is enough to disqualify him. It's so bad, in fact, that I wonder what is at the root of his economic policies. That is, what are the philosophic premises underlying his economic views, good as they sound.

I actually have Santorum/Perry/Bachmann to win the presidency at odds of 100 to 1, 50 to 1 and 100 to 1! Santorum isn't looking too bad now. (I don't support any of them by the way, just thought the odds looked OK).
