Barack Obama, Democratic Caucus Winner, Iowa, 2008
I just got word from my people on the ground in Iowa that Huckabee and Obama are victorious.
The same people who told me yesterday to "stick a fork in Hillary."
Those people are now en route to New Hampshire to get the word on the street before the primary on the 8th. However, early indications are that Hillary is even more screwed. Obama will now gain momentum... he looks good up there as a winner.
I think we have the Democratic nominee, people.
Now, on the Republican side, I find it disturbing that Huckabee could win nationally. I don't think it will happen. He'll be like Pat Robertson despite his attempts to go "populist." I make no predictions about the Republican side other than Romney is done. Stick a fork in that fucker.

And I'll say this about Iowans. They're dedicated. Watching them in their dimly lit cafeterias and panel lined living rooms choosing the candidates was a little freaky, but very inspiring.
UPDATE: After listening to Huckabee's victory speech, I feel I underestimated him. He's not Pat Robertson... he's much more likeable.
NOTE: Dodd has dropped out of the race. Biden has dropped out as well.
