What's Happening With Obama in Iowa?

    Anyone watching Barack Obama on the stump in Iowa yesterday (in this case, courtesy of C-Span) must have been struck by the utter listlessness of the candidate, followed by a crowd that listened politely but did little else. Joe Klein in Time had the same impression -- Obama was just mailing it in.
    Maybe Obama was just having an off weekend, though he's not picking the most opportune time to have it. But candidates know things that observers don't -- they're polling the race a lot more than we are and are obviously closer to the ground -- and one wonders if Obama knows something about the trends in Iowa that we don't. Admittedly, it's all speculation but something may be afoot. The body language of this campaign certainly suggests the possibility.
