So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Iowa results are in, with the New York Times reporting the following results with 91% or polls in.
Democrats Vote % Obama 821 37% 668 30 Clinton 659 30 Richardson 48 2 Biden 20 1 Dodd 1 Others 2
Clinton in third is very very bad: she will probably start to shed support slowly, although a solid performance in the next primaries could reverse it. Things don’t look good.
The main question with Obama in first (by a wide margin, it should be noted) is will the broader American public vote for him? Riding a wave of hype including the Oprah endorsement, the surge in votes is no surprise: I’m not convinced that anybody who voted for George W. Bush in the 2004 election will change their mind and vote for Barack Obama as much because of his lack of experience (a legitimate complaint) as the colour of his skin (which should be irrelevant, but unfortunately will not be.)
The world needs a Democratic victory, not another Republican one.
