This is a different world today and we will always be in trouble as long as the so called experts continue to turn a deaf ear to the new experts, the people in the trenches of society who see life from the bottom as the Islamists do and judge and act accordingly. With that said you know I have been saying from the beginning that Obama is going to surprise you. His command of the Iowa caucus was not the surprise the so called experts say. It was absolutely expected. The gap should have been even wider if anything. The so called experts say rarely does the person who wins Iowa go on to win the nomination but he will this time and win the election if there is one!
Obama was no surprise and neither was Huckabee as he was in evangelical country. New Hampshire is not Iowa! He will not do well there and in the end will not get the nomination. I am New England to the core and Lived on and worked farms through out New England including New Hampshire where my family is from. New Hampshire even more than Maine are fiercely independent and Religion is not going to matter. I see Obama doing well there but so too will Edwards and Hillary. in the end I see Edwards Obama dominating. As for Republicans McCain will carry the day in New Hampshire followed by Romney with Huckabee being the distant third he should be. When all is said and done it will be Obama Edwards or Edwards Obama as I would hope it turns out, against McCain Romney. Which ever way that ticket turns out we should defeat them hands down if there are elections and they are not taken out of our hands because of escalating wars or being stolen by any growing number of means!
Anyway that is how I saw it and see it playing out. There were no surprises! Following is the way the so called experts saw it. -- Mike Huckabee needed incredible turnout from self-described evangelical voters Thursday to win Iowa. Hillary Clinton was
counting on capturing the women's vote to carry the day. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee scored well with evangelical voters. Huckabee succeeded, while Clinton did not. So goes the tale of two very different presidential campaigns that appear to be on separate arcs: Huckabee up, Clinton down. "wrong, Iowa was about one, Obama! With all Democratic precincts reporting, Obama had the support of 38 percent of voters, compared to 30 percent for John Edwards and 29 percent for Hillary Clinton. of Course Iowa went for the Religious right. After this mis-administration and the lessons of perversion and corruption displayed by them you will not see this repeated in New Hampshire or anywhere else other than the so called Bible Belt.
Iowa is no New Hampshire. The largely conservative libertarian New England state could prove to be rough sledding for the newfound champion of social conservatives. In Iowa, entrance polls of caucus-goers showed that 3 out of every 5 Republicans were self-described born again or evangelical Christians. Huckabee beat Romney by better than 2-to-1 in this voting bloc. Among the rest of Iowa's Republican electorate, however, Huckabee finished a distant fourth behind Romney, McCain and Fred Thompson. In New Hampshire, social conservatives are not as influential. This potentially opens the door for Romney to regain the upper hand or for McCain to repeat his 2000 victory.
