I’ve been absorbing the saturation coverage of the Iowa caucuses this morning. One thing I can say about the result is that the outcome made me happy. If Dean ends up with the nomination, he’s going to have to fight for it. I think that’s a good thing. John Edwards did far better than people would have suspected a week ago, and I think that’s a good thing as well. I honestly don’t have any insight into what caused the Kerry and Edwards resurgence, but lots of other people seem to think they do. I’m also sad to say that I’m glad that Dick Gephardt is out of the race, and is now for all intents and purposes out of politics. He certainly spent many years serving his party, but I don’t think his leadership in Congress has done much for the Democratic party.
