Down the stretch they come...

WE'RE BACK! Return for frequent updates.

We're back from a Thanksgiving respite -- and just in time to watch some interesting wagering in the presidential horse race.

All year, the University of Iowa has been tracking conventional wisdom in the races for the Republican and Democratic nominations through an Electronic Trading Market that lets folks "invest" in the candidates they think will win.

On the Republican side (SHOWN ABOVE), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (BLUE line) continues to be the odds-on favorite, leading former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (GREEN line). But in recent days, there has been a surge in the "Rest Of Field" pick (RED line), most likely due to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's recent rise in the Iowa polls.

On the Democratic side (SEE BELOW), investors continue to bet heavily on Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (BLUE line). But after a late-summer swoon, Sen. Barack Obama (GREEN line) has started to regain some investor interest.

The way the regular stock markets have been performing lately, volatility is to be expected. So bargain hunters, check out those rock bottom rates on former Sens. Fred Thompson (Republican GRAY line) or John Edwards (Democratic YELLOW line).

Thanks for your patience as we recovered from our vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner -- and four pieces of pie.

WE'RE BACK for feverish blogging between now and the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3, 2007. SO CHECK BACK VERY, VERY OFTEN, and let us know how you think this horse race WILL or SHOULD turn out.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor. Wholesale Anaheim Ducks Jerseys
