This week on AirTalk’s political roundtable: It’s countdown to the Iowa caucuses!

Candidates are jockeying across the state trying to drum up final votes and  reacting to a potential run by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg .

As Californians, it’s difficult to watch the action knowing our own primary isn’t until June, but we can still get a piece of the action with some local analysis.

We hear from two analysts about what to watch for in these final days.
