Okay, maybe it's just me, but who cares (no offense) who the Iowans vote for in their caucus? And perhaps it's because, although American, I wasn't raised in this country, I'm still trying to figure out what on earth a "caucus" is anyway, and why does everyone seem to think they're so important? And why Iowa?
Turns out Obama and Huckabee won (whatever that means), but as history has demonstrated in the past, it means not a whit. Anything could happen between now and the primaries, and hopefully it will. As for the choice of Huckabee, I think the Iowan Republicans who happened to show up are lacking (no offense) in taste and good judgement. Huckabee would be as disastrous for this country as would any of the democrats. Many people have likened him to Jimmy Carter, and we certainly do not need another Carter in office.
I could be wrong, but this is my prediction as of today. On a programme last night, some Iowa caucus-goers felt that Fred Thompson seemed tired and disinterested- I think he might drop out and throw his support elsewhere. Although I have decided to vote for Giuliani, I don't think he'll get the nom. So, the winner is............. John McCain.
I predict the nom will be John McCain and Joe Lieberman ( or maybe, just maybe Fred) as his veep.
And, I have a feeling John just might become our next Prez.
We shall see.
But at this point in time, the race is wide open, and who knows who will eventually reach the winning line.
