The Hope and The Dope

Mike Huckabee, with Chuck Norris in the background, just accepted victory in the Iowa caucuses.

Barack Obama, my candidate, won on the democratic side.

So the big winners tonight are The Hope and The Dope.

I still think that Huckabee will get the nomination, but he isn't the big winner in Iowa. Obama is truly the big winner.

Iowa is a fairly conservative state. No huge urban centers and an almost completely white voter base.

For a conservative, evangelical to win in a conservative state is not big news....for a black man from a big urban center to win in a rural,conservative state is pretty big news and shows that Obama can generate not just enthusiasm but real action amoung a large group of people that have never participated in their confusing polictal primary process.

Huckabee! YIKES. Be afraid. Be very afraid. I'm totally psyched about Obama, on the other hand!
