CNN Calls Iowa for Barack Obama

According to Wolf Blitzer of CNN, Obama has won the Iowa caucuses. Now, it’s about margin of victory. If Obama wins big enough, he becomes the story, placing New Hampshire in play.  Say goodbye to John Edwards, who appears to have performed worse in Iowa this time, than in 2004.Some astounding information is coming out voter turnout on the Democratic side. Howard Dean, appearing on CNN, said that twice as many voters participated on the Democratic side as the Republican. This reinforces my sense that 2008 is a Democratic year. But his victory seems to have come on the backs of people traditionally not thought to be regular voters, particularly the young.
