Without Iowa, It's 'Just a Dream'

It is no secret that all the Democratic campaigns are counting heavily on winning Iowa. But now Michelle Obama has said it explicitly.

"Iowa will make the difference," she said during an event in Davenport on Wednesday night, according to the Quad-City Times.

"If Barack doesn't win Iowa, it's just a dream, but if we win Iowa, then we can move the world as it should be," the wife of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said. "And we need your help in making that happen, so join me."

Obama is effectively in a three-way tie in Iowa - the first contest state - with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Sen. John Edwards, and Obama is working increasingly to make it a two-way race with Clinton, the national front-runner. He has opened dozens of offices in the state and is spending the bulk of his on-the-road campaigning time there.

Tonight, though, Obama is cutting into Clinton territory with a 7 p.m. rally in Washington Square Park in Manhattan - with thousands expected to attend if it doesn't rain.
