After reviewing tonight's caucus results from Iowa, I'm tempted to suggest that presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney visit a pie maker named Ned if they want to resurrect their now-dead presidential hopes.

Thanks to a magical gift he's had since childhood, Ned's able to touch dead things and bring them back to life. People. Dogs. Dead fruit. It doesn't matter.

Some believe Republican John McCain owes the recent turn-around in his presidential campaign fortunes to Ned's touch. The Arizona senator is rumored to have visited Ned's pie shop (a.k.a., "The Pie Hole") six months ago after his campaign was reported to have run out of money. His campaign was dead then. Now, it's alive, and he's polling at or near the top of national presidential tracking polls.

Unfortunately for Clinton and Romney, two wealthy presidential candidates who saw their campaigns flat-line in Iowa tonight, Ned is not real. And McCain didn't get help from him. Instead, Ned's merely a character on Pushing Daisies, an ABC prime-time program that debuted this fall.

That means they're going to have to come up with something better -- perhaps, a better message or a better strategy -- if they truly hope to win their party nominations. They're going to have to come up with something genuine. Something money can't buy.
