For the first time in my memory my mother and I support the same candidate (Hillary Clinton) and my stepfather even prefers her among the Democrats. It seems that Iowa doesn't agree with us.
The Democratic Iowa Homepage has the following results with 1696 of 1781 precincts reporting:
- Obama: 37.39%
- Edwards: 29.95%
- Clinton: 29.47%
- Richardson: 2.12%
- Biden: .93%
I am not ready to give up on Hillary. I am however preparing myself to support Obama if it comes to that. I can live with him. If he is good enough for Oprah, who am I to complain?
In a discussion with a friend he tried to reassure me that there are 49 states left and that we can dismiss Iowa with the thoughts "WTF Iowa chose Huck!" His sentiment captured my mood pretty well.
