NEW YORK CITY — If the weather cooperates, our flights take off on time, and if Des Moines airport stays open long enough for us to touch down, Barnett, Tom and I will meet in Iowa sometime late tonight or early tomorrow morning. We’re going to the Des Moines Register Republican and Democratic debates Wednesday and Thursday. They’re the final debates before the January 3rd Iowa Caucus.

In addition to looking for the few remaining presidential candidates who haven’t yet responded to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge, we’ll also be arriving at the debate in style. What am I talking about? Come back tomorrow to see.

* 1:41AM CST: We made it! Check back later today for dispatches from the Des Moines Reigster Debate. It is indeed as icy as it looks in the above photo.
