The Politico: Huckabee and Obama win in Iowa
Hot Air: Open thread: Raucous caucus! Update: Early results coming in; Update: Hillary third with one-third half of precincts reporting; Update: NBC calls it for Obama
- Obama 940 38%
- Edwards 744 30%
- Clinton 737 29%
Hillary Clinton takes a licking in Iowa. Presently with 92% of precincts reporting, Hillary Clinton is in third place with 30% of the vote. Just as amazing as Barack Obama’s win in Iowa is the fact that between the Obama/Edwards “anti” Hillary vote is at 67%. No matter how Hillary, Bill or their campaign want to spin it, the Democratic “anti” Hillary vote is going to be a real issue for the woman who wishes to be crowned king.
You mean they were actully in the race?
