The Iowa caucuses are 11 months away but it’s never too early when you’re in fourth place behind a guy who’s not even running.

This will hit the airwaves tomorrow in Florida, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire and South Carolina. It’s fine, albeit completely generic. Exit question: if you’re running as the social con in the race and no one knows who you are, wouldn’t you want to at least mention abortion and gay marriage in your first ad?

Update: Meanwhile, Barry O’s picking up a little momentum. If Gore drops out and when Edwards drops out, Obama stands to inherit most of their supporters as the most liberal candidate left in the race. Note the number of undecideds, too.
