As he crisscrosses Iowa today, trying to round up some extra votes at tonight's presidential caucuses, U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd is telling supporters he's "not making any deals" to help anyone else. The Democrat told supporters in Iowa City this morning, "This is not a Monopoly game. That’s not the Iowa way of doing it.”
Dodd is aiming at a fourth place finish tonight - after U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, U.S. Sen. Barrack Obama of Illinois and former U.S. Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina. If Dodd comes in fourth, he plans to stay in the race. If he falls short, he's done.
Dodd told about 100 backers this morning, according to an account in the Iowa City Press-Citizen, that Iowa Democrats are "not only going to decide who goes forward, but who doesn’t go on.”
Oh, well. At least if Dodd loses, Connecticut will be happy to welcome him back home.
