Closing Arguments

Robert Borosage has a solid roundup of the Democrats' closing arguments as they head into Iowa. For my part, I think there are reasonable cases to be made for both Edwards and Obama. It still seems to me that absent the presumption of inevitability, there's little reason to prefer Clinton but she's defused most of my initial hostility to her. I congratulate the people who feel a high degree of confidence about their preferred candidates' "theory of change" or "electability" but from where I sit it's very hard to say who's right about that stuff. Mostly, though, I'm super-pessimistic that any of the stuff any of them are promising to pass will actually pass no matter who gets elected.
