Caucus Take One: Well, the first caucus is history and there's a couple of surprises to come out of Iowa; on both sides of the aisle.
First, the Republicans weren't congratulating Mitt Romney, instead they were celebrating the victory of Mike Huckabee. Mike Huckabee? Yes, the outspent and recently single-digit trailer managed to take the lead with 34% of the vote. Romney had only 25%. Huckabee, or Fuckable as I like to crudely call him, is a former Baptist minister and claims to be a man of God. Ok, so I don't really want another Republican president but I wouldn't kick him out of my bedroom. So what!
The Democrats are the bigger surprise, in my opinion. Instead of frontrunner Hillary Clinton celebrating today, Barack Obama took the victory in Iowa with 38%. Clinton placed third, yes third, behind Edwards. She must really be loving that!
Now the candidates prepare for New Hampshire which takes place next week. No doubt there's going to be a lot of scrambling going on; for both the winners and the rest of the pack.
