    In the last poll I saw Paul was basically tied with Newt for first and was only behind by one point.

    Presuming he pulls off a win what will it mean for the rest of them? Who will drop out? Will Paul be just like Huckabee?

    Nothing happens. I think he's won Iowa before.

    As goes Iowa so goes Iowa, I always say.

    Seriously, if Dr. Paul pulls off a win in Iowa, it will gain him nothing but a few extra hundred thousand dollars and zero other primary/caucus wins.

    I guess the biggest effect would be the Paulites going nuts on this board. Ugh

    If Paul won the nomination, that would pretty much end the existence of the republican party. It would go the way of the whigs.

    Iowa would slowly lose its prestige.

    If he does win, we'd see the commercial candidates unload on him in a major way. They've been content to ignore him so far, not wanting to alienate the Paul supporters or the libertarian TP members. But they won't let him take over the party.

    In fact, I'm expecting to see some of that at tomorrow nights debate.

    If Paul wins Iowa... I guess it's on to New Hampshire(IIRC). I'm actually rooting for the guy... I like him... to a point.
