Republicans want Obama to beat Clinton in Iowa
It looks like the G.O.P. wants Barack Obama to beat Hillary Clinton in Iowa.
Newt Gingrich said in an interview with ABC's Good Morning America that he expect Obama to beat Clinton as the first state officially weighs in.
“My guess is that Sen. Obama’s going to win Iowa, and he’s going to win it by a substantial margin,” Gingrich said. “I have a hunch that the emotional energy that Sen. Obama’s building is more powerful than the emotional energy that Sen. Clinton is building.”
“It just seems to me right now, that in Iowa at least, that Sen. Obama’s built a real head of steam,” Gingrich said in the interview, nearly a year before the Nov. 4, 2008 general election.
The Republicans, of course, want the "beat-able" Democrat to win the nomination. It looks like Gingrich and the boys might be afraid of Hillary.
I expect that Hillary will win Iowa, but I don't think it will be by a "substantial margin."
