The real story here is the Huckabee surge, and what a Huckabee win would portend for the rest of the nominating race.

This much is sure- for Huckabee and Obama, Iowa is win or go home. Romney and Clinton can survive a stumble in Iowa; Rudy isn't vested in success in Iowa either. But, Huckabee and Obama need to win in the Hawkeye state and the good news for now for them is that they are headed in that direction.
