In 2004, Obama made a great speech to the DNC convention and excited the grassroots.

Little discussed fact: Weeks after the speech, he quietly sent aids into Iowa to gauge a candidacy.

While 2008 was an EASY year for a Dem, I'd say that a fella who did not come from the Establishment, yet was able to organize caucus states so well, and stay under the Clintonian radar screen until he beat them in not a stupid guy.

He's smart.

He knows what he's doing.

Hence my theory, he's hurting America on purpose.
