"In a shocking turn of events, neither Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama do NOT enter the race for president in 2008, both citing a lack of experience. Of course, this doesn't stop John Edwards, who soars to the lead immediately. Now, Russ Feingold and Evan Bayh enter the race, but the both don't have the cross appeal of John Edwards, meaning right now we have frontrunner Edwards."





Polls:
John Edwards: 30%
Russ Feingold: 14%
Evan Bayh: 12%
Bill Richardson: 6%
Joe Biden: 5%
Chris Dodd: 3%
Mike Gravel: 2%
Dennis Kucinich: ~0%
Tom Vilsack: ~0%
Undecided: 28%



Immediately after the entrance of Russ Feingold, Kucinich drops out and endorses Feingold. Vilsack, seeing his poll numbers at 0%, drops out in favor of Evan Bayh.



Gregory: "At this point in the race, you are being seen as the easy front-runner. What would you have to say about the entrance of these two new candidates into the race?

Edwards: "Well that's quite simple: bring it on!"

On the eve of the Iowa Caucus

National Polls:
John Edwards: 28%
Russ Feingold: 20%
Evan Bayh: 15%
Bill Richardson: 9%
Joe Biden: 6%
Chris Dodd: 6%
Mike Gravel: 4%
Undecided: 12%

Iowa Polls:
Russ Feingold: 25%
Evan Bayh: 25%
John Edwards: 25%
Joe Biden: 6%
Chris Dodd: 4%
Bill Richardson: 3%
Mike Gravel: ~1%
Undecided: 11%

Nevada Polls:
John Edwards: 17%
Russ Feingold: 16%
Bill Richardson: 15%
Joe Biden: 14%
Mike Gravel: 9%
Evan Bayh: 7%
Chris Dodd: 2%
Undecided: 20%

New Hampshire Polls:
John Edwards: 25%
Bill Richardson: 20%
Russ Feingold: 19%
Joe Biden: 7%
Mike Gravel: 7%
Evan Bayh: 6%
Chris Dodd: ~1%
Undecided: 15%

South Carolina Polls:
John Edwards: 42%
Evan Bayh: 20%

Bill Richardson: 6%
Joe Biden: 4%
Chris Dodd: ~1%
Mike Gravel: ~1%
Undecided: 20%


"While Edwards has a strong lead in the national polls and in the polls in South Carolina, Iowa has been shockingly close as of lately, partly because of great ground game by Evan Bayh and brilliant grassroots by Russ Feingold. Even though Edwards has been holding a lead in New Hampshire, its not much, thanks to a great performance by Bill Richardson, who has been really putting focus into the state. Edwards, who was once leading everyone in the race by as much as twenty points, is now in serious trouble in Iowa. He has to win or his front-runner crown will be into the hands of the many, with even Bill Richardson aiming for a shot should Edwards fumble." - Chris Matthews

Iowa Caucus 1% of the Precincts Reporting:
Evan Bayh: 24.4%
Russ Feingold: 24.3%
John Edwards: 22.2%

Joe Biden: 12.2%
Bill Richardson: 10.7%
Mike Gravel: 5.9%
Chris Dodd: 0.3%

"Now, don't get excited, but it appears that both Bill Richardson and Joe Biden out-do their poll numbers, in Richardson's case, significantly, so they both are safe for New Hampshire and future races. Gravel and Dodd switch places, with Dodd taking in shockingly low numbers. It looks like the end of the road for Chris Dodd. Gravel's performance, while not very good, is a strong inticator that he isn't quite finished yet, and he probably will make a movement over to New Hampshire, where his neo-libertarian message will have more effect." - Rachel Maddow

Iowa Caucus 23% of the precincts reporting:
Russ Feingold: 25.6%
Evan Bayh: 25.3%

John Edwards: 20.2%
Joe Biden: 12.1%
Bill Richardson: 11.5%
Mike Gravel: 5.2%
Chris Dodd: 0.1%

"Now, lets stop the talk of the minor leagues: Edwards is in trouble. He just dropped to third in Iowa. This can't be good for his campaign. His frontrunner status is on the serious crumbles, with Bayh and Feingold, intruders at best, taking the lead in the state. That, and the recent controversies surrounding him are starting to spell doom for his campaign. If he can prove these claims to be fallacious, and pull some strong performances in New Hampshire and Nevada, then he can come out of this clean again."




Its FEINGOLD

Iowa Caucus 100% of the Precincts reporting:
Russ Feingold: 26.5%
Evan Bayh: 25.6%
John Edwards: 19.4%
Joe Biden: 12.3%
Bill Richardson: 10.7%
Mike Gravel: 5.4%
Chris Dodd: 0.1%

Chris Dodd drops out, does not make an endorsement


"What a wonderful night for democracy in America! I hope to lead us forward to a better tomorrow" - Russ Feingold

"Well, I woulda liked first, but second seems pretty good right now considering where we started!" - Evan Bayh

"Wow guys, I'm surprised you came out this strong for me. MAAAAAN, I will not drop out yet!" - Joe Biden

John Edwards: 36%
Evan Bayh: 27%
Joe Biden: 9%
Russ Feingold: 7%
Bill Richardson: 3%
Mike Gravel: 2%
Undecided: 16%

"Now in National Polls, it's looking like momentum is on the side of Feingold: with recent controversies over Edwards possible affairs and Feingolds upset win in Iowa has now made this a dead heat between Feingold and Edwards, with Bayh in a distant third. Now, the primaries in favor of Bayh are long and away, but he has enough of an advantage in South Carolina to where if Edwards campaign doesn't slam dunk the next couple of primaries he's ready to make it competitive. Underdog candidates Bill Richardson and Joe Biden are now making competitive marks in New Hampshire and Nevada, where they are both in a dead heat for the lead. Nevada, in particular, looks very strange right now: No one has a lead, and there is a possibility for a win by anyone in the state, even, shockingly enough, Mike Gravel. This is shaping up to be one hell of an interesting race." - Chris Matthews

New Hampshire Precincts 2%:
Russ Feingold: 25.3%
John Edwards: 25.1%
Bill Richardson: 24.9%

Mike Gravel: 12.9%
Joe Biden: 7.9%
Evan Byah: 3.9%

"The top three has been clear in the polls, and with a few of the precincts reporting, that top three once again stands. Mike Gravel gives another shocking performance, and this looks like it won't kill his momentum going onwards to his launching pad state Nevada. Joe Biden does well enough to sail on to Nevada as well, and Evan Byah's last place showing isn't consequential, since he isn't campaigning here, he's making strong moves on Edwards shining beacon: South Carolina." - Wolf Blitzer

New Hampshire, 35% of the Precincts:
Bill Richardson: 26.7%
Russ Feingold: 26.7%

John Edwards: 23.3%
Mike Gravel: 13.0%
Joe Biden: 7.3%
Evan Bayh: 3.0%

"Hate to stop you now, but it looks like Byah got some help in South Carolina here: John Edwards gets another, shocking, third place showing. It looks like his controversies are having some real effect on his campaign, and it doesn't look favorable for him heading up to South Carolina. It's now either Feingold seals the deal or Richardson becomes a serious contender."



Bill Richardson wins the New Hampshire primary!

New Hampshire, 100% of the Precincts Reporting:
Bill Richardson: 27.3%
Russ Feingold: 26.1%
John Edwards: 23.4%

Russ Feingold: 19
John Edwards: 14
Bill Richardson: 13
Evan Byah: 12
Joe Biden: 6

"Thank you New Hampshire, and now we have the hope we need to change America for the better!" - Bill Richardson

"We continue to shock the mainstream, I will continue my progressive message for America!" - Russ Feingold

"Well folks, onwards to Nevada and South Carolina, where this campaign will prove itself to be a vital one that will change everything we know about America! Children won't starve under this administration!" - John Edwards

Inspite of a strong performance in Nevada, Gravel drops out, endorses no one.

So far, so good. I don't recall there being a TL where Richardson won the Dem nomination in '08, so I'll be rooting for him.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

"It looks like todays primary in South Carolina is Edwards last chance to make a stand before Super Tuesday. Because of Evan Bayh making a strong standing in both South Carolina and Florida, Edwards, due to a lack of funds, has had to abandon Florida in order to make a serious campaign effort in South Carolina by dropping Florida. Florida is now in Bayh's hands to lose: with Feingold and Richardson catching up competitively in the state. If Edwards bombs in South Carolina, look for another strong performance from Joe Biden, who has had a bit of a surge due to an upset in Nevada." - Chris Matthews

South Carolina Primary Night
South Carolina, 32% of the Precincts In:
Evan Bayh: 32.85%
John Edwards: 32.73%
Joe Biden: 22.82%
Bill Richardson: 6.85%
Russ Feingold: 4.75%

"The polls were correct, this is a dead heat right now between Edwards and Bayh. Biden, taking into account for the dissatisfaction of voters in the scandal ridden campaign of John Edwards and the lack of charisma from Evan Bayh, Biden's straight talkin' campaign gets a surprisingly strong third place tonight." - Wolf Blitzer

"What about Richardson and Feingold?" - John King

"Well both are very competitive in Florida, so they live to fight another day." - Wolf Blitzer

"Finally, Edwards cannot lose South Carolina, can he?" - John King

"If he lost it, there is no way he could become the nominee." - Wolf Blitzer

"Well then I guess it's a sad night for John Edwards tonight, as the victor in South Carolina is Evan Bayh!' - John King



Evan Bayh is the victor in South Carolina
South Carolina, 100% of the Precincts Reporting:
Evan Bayh: 33.82%
John Edwards: 31.95%
Joe Biden: 23.54%

"Man, this is some serious stuff. Thank you to all my supporters as we take on Super Tuesday!" - Joe Biden

"Well, folks, looks like we're heading towards another victory in Florida where, like Bill Clinton before me, I will be the comeback kid!" - Evan Byah

"With Super Tuesday coming, it seems like Feingold is walking into the stage with the lead, but will he come out of it with it? He just took some hard hits in the pre-Super Tuesday debate from Bill Richardson and Evan Bayh, the other possible frontrunners. It would take a miracle at this point for Joe Biden to come out of this anywhere ahead of where he is now, in fourth place out of these last four standing. That being said, miracles do happen, particularly in the spectacularly dynamic world of the primary season, so anything can happen, particularly since he's been campaigning like crazy as of late" - Wolf Blitzer

Super Tuesday Night Part 1

National Polls Pre-Super Tuesday Results:
Russ Feingold: 27%
Evan Bayh: 25%
Bill Richardson: 22%
Joe Biden: 14%
Undecided: 10%



"The first batch of results have just come in, and so far the results have been saying what the polls have been saying: some states are competitive, some really aren't. Joe Biden will be taking his home state of Delaware and New Jersey as expected. Georgia will go to Evan Bayh. Massachussets goes to Richardson with some fight from Feingold and Connecticut goes to Richardson from some fight from both Feingold and Biden. Unfortunately for Richardson, New York, a highly competitive state right now, is in a three-way tie between him, Feingold and Bayh. It's looking to be a majorly decisive place for the primaries at this point." - Lawrence O'Donnell



Delaware:
Joe Biden: 70.53%
Bill Richardson: 15.32%

"It's early in the night, but at this moment in time, Feingold and Bayh are getting CRUSHED by their less-well funded opponents, and in the case of Bill Richardson, certainly less well known. However, its too early to call this election for them, and now we have results from more states." - Chris Matthews

"Well, with the new group of states appearing, things are looking much brighter for Bayh: He's managed to crush his opponents in the south, taking nearly all the delegates in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennesse and Alabama. Not only that, but he clearly wins a state pundits thought was competitive, Missouri, and closed the slight polling gap in Illinois to a dead heat with Feingold, which is a state that cannot be called yet. Also what cannot be called yet is Kansas, which is a four way dead-heat between all the candidates. Minnesota, obvious to all, goes to Feingold, as it is near home state and that should be obvious to everyone." - Rachel Maddow



Oklahoma:
Evan Bayh: 58.53%

Super Tuesday, Part 2

"And we're back for more coverage on Super Tuesday. Of our two calls, only one we can now make: Kansas. Kansas will be making its way to... Joe Biden's pocket! It seems as if when the electorate is totally divided, as it was in Kansas, that's Joe Biden territory, as the same thing happened in Nevada. Illinois, however, is still too close to call... and we won't be able to make one probably until much later on tonight. However, with the new group of states with results in, none really are too much of a shock, mostly in the favor of Governor Richardson, who pulls Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico, a block of western states close to (and are), his home. No shocking wins, no upsets, no nothing."

Joe Biden: 194

"In this round of primaries, Bill Richardson was the clear leader, and it showed: He is, at this point in the night, the winner of Super Tuesday, 30 delegates ahead of Bayh and almost 100 delegates ahead of Feingold. If he manages to surprise with a win in California, and a strong enough showing in Illinois to lap some delegates, he might just be the front-runner after this whole thing is over." - Keith Olbermann

"Well, that's all fine and dandy, but we have some new results, finally, some real benefit to Feingold. He wins two huge delegate hauls: He finally pulls off Illinois from Evan Byah, and he pulls away in California. He also wins Idaho: which is a shock, due to Richardsons slight lead in the state during the polls. Once we get the delegate count on these last couple of states, we could finally get a looksy at who the real leader of this race is." - Chris Matthews


California:
Russ Feingold: 42.82%
Bill Richardson: 32.27%

Joe Biden: 5.57%

Super Tuesday Final Total:
Bill Richardson: 479
Evan Bayh: 453
Russ Feingold: 548
Joe Biden: 198





Overall Delegate Count:
Russ Feingold: 688.5
Bill Richardson: 541.5
Evan Bayh: 515.5
Joe Biden: 222

"Inspite of some lack of hope, Russ Feingold maintains a solid lead in delegates at this point, upsetting Bill Richardson's strong momentum into today. Evan Bayh places a strong third and can continue in this race, should he make a strong fight for delegates continuing. Joe Biden's road to the presidency, however, ends today. There is not a chance, from here on out, that Biden could possibly make a bid for the White House, he is, simply put, finished." - Lawrence O'Donnell

Joe Biden withdraws from the race, endorses Governor Richardson



"Look folks, I've loved running, but I'm not up to it anymore. There is no more a viable path for me to reach the presidency, and as a result, I am withdrawing. Luckily, all three of these candidates are more qualified than I am to become the president. Each one of them has the experience and the courage to change this nation. However, there is one that is closest to my view point and that is Governor Richardson. Thank you for the opportunity, and I am happy where this campaign has gone!"

National Polls:
Russ Feingold: 40%
Bill Richardson: 30%
Evan Bayh: 30%

"With the loss of Joe Biden from the race, we are now down to three: Feingold, Richardson, and Bayh. Feingold, due to his delegate victory on Super Tuesday, pulls out with a ten point lead over his tied opponents. Even then, continue to expect a very close race." - Chris Matthews

I assume McCain is still stomping everyone on the other side?

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

Awe, and Edwards convention with his staff bailing and forcing a floor vote for a new nominee would have been fun...though predictable if he remained frontrunner.
