Obama and Huckabee Take Nation's First Caucus in Iowa


Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee won their respective races in the Iowa caucuses Thursday night, leaving leftover candidates from both parties either scrambling for their next move or on their way out. Senator Hillary Clinton and John Edwards came within a percentage point of one another in the race for second place on the Democratic side, with Edwards edging out Clinton by a hair.

On the Republican side, second-place winner Mitt Romney was not even close, leaving a wide-open opportunity for John McCain in New Hampshire next week, where his support has risen in recent weeks.

The numbers came in like this: " Mr. Huckabee won with 34.4 percent of the delegate support, after 86 percent of precincts had reported. Mr. Romney had 25.4 percent, former Senator Fred D. Thompson of Tennessee had 13.4 percent and Senator John McCain of Arizona had 13.2 percent. On the Democratic side, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, Mr. Obama had 37.6 percent of the delegate support, Mr. Edwards 29.8 percent and Mrs. Clinton had 29.5 percent. Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico was fourth, at 2.11 percent."

Mike Gravel Wants You To Get Mad!

You may have heard that Mike Gravel held his own debate last night since he was excluded from the one that took place at Drexel University.

The New York Times reported yesterday: "Though he has been included in most of the previous Democratic debates, MSNBC contends that Mr. Gravel failed to meet any of the network’s criteria for participation in tonight’s event (candidates had to meet certain standards in at least one of three categories: polling, fund-raising and travel). Mr. Gravel’s camp is crying 'corporate censorship,' and the former Alaska senator argues that his opposition to the military industrial complex is prompting backlash from G.E."

Actually, he did make an appearance, and it was incendiary. That video is above.
