I think Sandeep has it pretty much nailed. There are, however, a few days to go, so the numbers might move a little bit.
Richardson or Kucinich comes in 4th
On the GOP side, I’m a little less specific:

I invite my fellow HA contributors to add their predictions to this post!
In a surprise upset, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg wins the Democratic caucus, while Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel takes the top spot for the Republicans, despite the fact that neither is running. Or maybe vice versa. Because DC sage David Broder just couldn’t be that wrong.
