Bill Richardson: God Wants Iowa to Vote First

Does there come a point when you cease to realize that you're licking somone's shoes?

...Bill Richardson says there's divine support for Iowa's status in the nominating process:

"Iowa, for good reason, for constitutional reasons, for reasons related to the Lord, should be the first caucus and primary," Richardson, New Mexico's governor, said at the Northwest Iowa Labor Council Picnic. "And I want you to know who was the first candidate to sign a pledge not to campaign anywhere if they got ahead of Iowa. It was Bill Richardson."
What exactly does he mean by 'for reasons related to the Lord?'

And a broader point: can the Florida state Democratic party promise to assist the campaign of whoever 'loses' Iowa? It's about time someone establish a counter-incentive to a victory in Iowa and New Hampshire.
