    Ok, I know it's a long way from the nomination, so you can't say they've really "blown" it for anyone, but it looks like Huckabee is winning big. Seems to me Huckabee is the only GOP candidate who is virtually assured of losing the general election no matter who the Dems nominate. Doesn't seem like a good choice by Iowans.

    Iowa is the beginning of the process, not the end. Now that Huckabee is now the front runner, folks will begin to examine his record more closely. If he does well in NH, I really start to worry.

    And Obama for the Dems. Could there be two worse choices? Frankly, all the choices are bad and worse. In a nation of 300+ million, these guys are the first choices of Iowa? We are in trouble.

    Yeah there could be a worse choice than Obama. Either Clinton or Edwards :)

    Much as I hate to say it, I'd prefer Hillary to either of the other two, and I despise her.:eusa_wall:

    The three front runners for the Dems are almost unbelievably bad choices for President, and they are rivaled only by the Republican choices. Again, in a nation of 300 million people it boils down to these guys? Clearly our best people are staying far away from running for President.

    Sure, onedomino. If you're already successful in some other area, who needs the headache of running for President and having yourself and your family constantly attacked?

    I think Obama is going to beat her, Dr. Grump.
