Y'know, it's really hard to

Y'know, it's really hard to watch Matthews trumpeting this line that "2/3 of the party has repudiated Clinton." Given the outcome as it is, 2/3 of the party repudiated every candidate, more or less. A 4 point split among the three leaders is mouse nuts.

With respect, negative...

That's Obama first, Edwards second, Hillary LAST.
Right where she belongs.

The Iowa Caucus is an overrated joke for the most part, but it did make one thing remarkably clear.
This "Hillary as the Inevitable Nominee" horse shit can stop now.
Looks like the Democratic party might finally be opening it's eyes to the fact that America cannot take much more Corporate Whoredom. Nor do we need this Bush/Clinton Royal Family mentality.
I just saw Bill on TV....It almost seemed as though it was draining his energy trying to maintain that fake smile.

Too early to say goodbye to Billary just yet, but I can't wait for that moment to arrive. ;)

Bottom line?
Edwards doesn't have a fraction of the money Obama and Clinton have, but he finishes second.
That's a major, major boost going into New Hampshire.
Corporate rule just suffered a blow. Let's hope the trend continues.

As mentioned on TennViews, winning the Iowa caucus is not the nomination:

1992 - Tom Harkin (76%)
1988 - Dick Gephardt (31%)
1976 - "Uncommitted" (37%)
1972 - "Uncommitted" (36%)
