Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Another Iowa question

After reading Peter L.’s post, I have another question. To what degree will the press focus on the Obama story, giving much less attention to what happens on the boring old Republican side? Will that leave the Republican race much less conclusive (with people unable to get much of a bounce from winning a primary) until the Democratic race is settled?

Props to Peter, by the way, for the best instant analysis I’ve read.

If the press is starting to believe Obama is legitimate and can win, they'll embrace and protect him. Iowa helped in that.

Here's a return question -- are we on the cusp of a popular backlash against the primary process? Jonah Goldberg at NRO fires a shot today. I suspect he's not alone in the sentiment.
