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 Iowa...is not a stupid guy.

He's smart.

He knows what he's doing.

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