    as Democratic rules mandate apportioned allocation of delegates.

    You folks are talking here like the delegates from each primary goes to the winner.  Well they don't!  Each gets delegates according to an allocation.  If you make 10% of the total vote, you get a share!

    Those 20% of the vote victories claimed by the Iowa and NH campaigns will be less than victories, as we see the less than 50% allocation of hugh blocks of Jan & Feb delegates spreading out amongst multiple candidates.

    Brings into play the other quirky Democratic party rule about "Super" delegates.  Party elected officials and state party leaders that get an automatic seat at the convention.

    Popcorn anyone?  You may win in the field and lose in the smoke filled rooms of Denver or Not-Denver, where ever the convention is held.

    I kinda like Howard Dean, it's those wild eye crazies that came with him I wonder about!
