You mean South Carolina? That's another strange place, like Iowa and New Hampshire.

This country seems to love strangeness. Otherwise, the first round would be in some place like Illinois, Michigan, or Wisconsin.

This has sort of been addressed, but you do realize that states in the deep south have the largest per capita black populations in the country, right? Many of the whites wouldn't ever vote for a black man wouldn't vote Democrat anyway, so the skin color of the candidate is moot. Still, if he could mobilize the black vote in states like SC, he might do well. I don't see how the TUCC thing would hurt there. Besides, I don't think the TUCC page is a big deal. And I'm a white southerner. The south isn't as monolithic or universally wrong-headed as some folks seem to think.

I think Iowa is a nice victory for Obama, but this victory does not mean he's won and the other candidates are going to go home. Hillary is poised for all out war and I think we will just have to wait and see. Obama had better not get comfortable.

I like Barack Obama and will be voting for him. Hopefully he gets the Democratic nomination. He's different and not trying to remind people of everything that's wrong with us and this world, including scaring us. Instead he talks about new ideas and how to improve stuff. A damn good concept.

I don't like Obama, and I never would vote for him, but his victory in Iowa certainly gives him and his supporters far more credibility and viability as a candidate than all the Ron Paul supporters who were tauting their phony Internet polls showing Ron Paul with a landslide victory.

It is far from over. Giuliani did not do well in Iowa either so we have to wait and see.

Rudy is not working Iowa or NH. He is waiting down the road in Florida.
