Iowa caucus results

So Obama wins Iowa and Hillary comes in third (guess those blackberry messages went unanswered). Huckabee looks like someone Obama could beat. Things do not look good for Hillary. I saw somewhere that more absentee ballots have already been cast in Florida than people who voted in Iowa (of course, Florida was kicked out of the Democratic party). And CNN says Hillary still leads in the delegate count 154 for Hillary to 50 for Obama to 33 for Edwards (the fix is still in).

I think Thompson was hoping he would get few enough votes in Iowa so that he could honorably drop out, as Biden and Dodd did on the other side. So by getting a few more votes than may have been expected, Thompson may have to stay in. Sometimes Iowans are just mean.
