Obama's Campaign Plan

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Illinois Senator Barack Obama's hopes for the Democratic nomination hinge on getting hundreds of thousands of new voters fired up enough to actually turn out. He also will be spending a good chunk of his $80 million at the very end of a front-loaded campaign.

Other candidates -- usually trailing, like Obama -- have tried similar plans in the past and failed. But none of them had nearly the money Obama has. And the scheduling conditions of the 2008 campaign have never existed before.

Obama's plan is all about the Iowa caucuses.

His advisors tell The Associated Press they see hope in the fact that although she is surging ahead elsewhere in the country, Iowa remains a tight race between Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama and 2004 vice presidential nominee John Edwards.
