New Year's is over, but the real party is just beginning

Expect candidates to be holding rallies, events and even concerts up to final minute (6:30 p.m. - tomorrow to be exact) before caucus goers are due to report to their correct precinct location.
Today, most candidates are fitting in five or more events all around the state - predominately in Eastern Iowa. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and John McCain all end their day of campaigning here in Des Moines - where they will work to capitalize on last-minute media attention. Republican Mike Huckabee will not be in the state tonight - instead he will be in sunny Southern California to make an appearance on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
Tomorrow night, after caucus parties/return-watch parties will be taking place around Des Moines.
Here are the party locations we know about so far:
Joe Biden - Science Center of Iowa
Hillary Clinton - Hotel Fort Des Moines
Chris Dodd - Temple for the Performing Arts
John Edwards - Savory Hotel
Barack Obama - Hy-Vee Hall
Bill Richardson - Quality Inn and Suites
Mike Huckabee - Embassy Suites
Alan Keyes - Ramada Inn
