So McCain and Rudy won't "give Iowa a chance" as the song goes. The reaction of many pundits chimed in "oh, well, I guess that takes the wind out of Romney's sails." The reality behind the McCain/Rudy retreat however is far more interesting.

Recent polling showing Romney ahead in Iowa togther with an unmatched ground game scared the competition into submission. This is classic Romney. Come out strong and turn the competition out the door by pure brute force. It worked on January 8th of this year with a $6.5 million kick off of the campaign and now it's worked in Iowa.

With Mitt's sons buying a Winebego and promising to canvas all 99 counties in Iowa... With serious donors coming to Mitt's side of the aisle... With experienced Iowans at the helm for the ride... there was no way they could lose.

You see, when John McCain and Rudy Giuliani look at Team Romney Iowa this is what they see:

Team ROmney Iowa

Gentry Collins, former executive director of the Iowan Republican Party; Doug Gross, former candidate for Governor; and native Iowan Jill Latham. A solid team with a record before the first major benchmark in Iowa. Way to go Team Romney.

OK... I am officially mad!!!
That picture made me spit Sprite all over my laptop screen!
Thanks a lot!

Iowa is still relevent. It now becomes a race to see if Mitt can stop any dark horse from emerging! But it also irreparably damages McCain and Rudy in the state. Too chicken fight politically? Courage of convictions? How does that translate into courage to fight the war?

Whoever thinks that Mitt Romney will suffer in any way from John McCain and Rudy Giuliani skipping the Iowa straw poll, is sadly mistaken, in my opinion.

Mitt Romney got it right when he said that it will energise his supporters and galvanize support for his campaign.

When a candidate can claim that his two main rivals could not compete with him and ran away from the competition because of his superior organizational strength, that is a huge positive that can give further momentum to Mitt's current surge in the polls.

Go Mitt Go!

This retreat makes you go hmmmmmm, on both Rudy and McCain's leadership quality. Retreat when you face potential defeat? Is that the philosophy that made USA great? Run Away! Run Away!

This is going to backfire on both of them....bigtime. Now if Fred Thompson enters, and Mitt steamrolls him, it makes Mitt even more powerful.

Guiliani and McCain skipping the straw poll does seem like they are trying to make the poll irrelevant. But there is just no substitute for being there. Mitt in 2008!
