Marc Ambinder reports the schedule.
The most interesting thing that I saw was 3 days between Iowa and New Hampshire. Is that going to dampen the effect of (presumably) Romney’s Iowa win. Candidates are just going to move straight to New Hampshire, and there will be little chance for people to see much impact. With three days to go, people in New Hampshire are going to be making their minds before Iowa.
The same thing applies to Nevada, but I am not sure that anyone is really going to care about Nevada anyways.
