Line Change!

Thanks for a great first week in the caucus cooler. We had more visitors that we could have ever expected. In fact, we weren't even planning on introducing the blog this early! We also broke a national newsstory. Thanks again to the Hotline for the attention!

So make sure to recommend Caucus Cooler to your friends. There's a box on the bottom right sidebar that allows you to do so.

Onto the Week 1 line changes:

Frist shoots up the list with proof that he serious about Iowa. Kennedy is a much better strategist than he was a candidate; he's a nice pick-up for Team Frist.

With Giuliani looking more and more like a candidate, he moves higher and higher up the list. It's going to be hard for him to crack the Top 3, at least until he makes some Iowa moves. We also have another reason for keeping him at #4, but you'll have to check back over the weekend for that.

Pataki drops back just a hair, thanks to the "Rudy Factor"

Newt and Brownback drop a little, just for being stagnant while Frist is on the go.

Thanks again for a great first week. Looking forward to chatting with you around the cooler.

Turn on the TV, the only one articulating the middle east crisis in an understandable way is Newt Gingrich.

He's been Fox News' go-to guy on the crisis. How has he been stagnant? Especially with Newt at the Iowa State Fair.

We think it's going to be tough for Newt to put together the money and organization necessary if he doesn't start moving early (unlike Rudy). Right now, he's just dipping his toe in the pool. If we become more convinced he's going to run, then he'll move. Until then....

    It is an unscientific assessment of the Iowa Caucus (not the Presidential race as a whole) from an insiders view at the given time. The line IS NOW mathematically accurate but is NOT intended for gambling purposes. Information may only be reproduced with credit to the Caucus Cooler.
