Although I support Hillary, I actually think Obama will win the caucuses in Iowa, which start roughly 14 hours from now. I waited until now to make this prediction because it has been a very close race, but I think the latest indications are enough to predict a triumph for Obama.

My best piece of evidence is the latest Des Moines Register poll, which has Obama leading 32 to 25 (Clinton) and 24 (Edwards). The Register poll strikes an air of respectability and historical accuracy, having correctly predicted many prior races. Independents, a group strongly inclined towards Obama, will form a higher share of the caucus participants on the Democratic side than ever before. They are the ones likely to give Obama the edge since registered Democrats prefer Hillary by a considerable margin.

In the last few days, Obama's crowds have grown noticeably larger, a good sign that the campaign has momentum. On the other hand, crowds at events by Hillary or Edwards show no relevant shifts.

All three campaigns boast terrific organizations - Obama should not have a problem turning out his core supporters.

Due to the above reasons, I predict a victory for Obama. If you think otherwise and are willing to argue your viewpoint, let's have at it. The wonderful thing about this debate is that the winner will be beyond doubt after tomorrow!

Your arguments do not address any of mine. Furthermore, as I said below, I'm not talking about the Republicans. Chuck Norris is not even running for the Presidency. You could be right in opposing me, Obama might not win, but your reasoning is shoddy at best.

I made my case fairly convincingly. Not only did I make the right prediction, I made the right prediction for the right reasons, which is equally important in the context of the debate.

That is disgusting. I actually like Chuck Norris more than Hillary or Obama, but for that inarticulate moron who can't be bothered to meet deadlines to be winning? Something is wrong here. The better debater should win, whether you like him or not.

This is not a fact yet. The debate tries to determine whether it will be or not. I think it will be. If anyone thinks otherwise, let's hear your reasons. Obviously when it all comes and goes, someone will clearly be wrong and someone clearly right.

Sorry I meant after having heard that Obama did not win.....if you heard that Obama won, you definitely would not want to join this debate!

Also something else: if no one accepts this challenge by 8:15 pm US Eastern time today (currently it is 4:41 am US Eastern), I will cancel the debate. Waiting much longer would simply be foolish because someone could just join right after having heard that Obama actually won, guaranteeing a win in this debate as well.
