The Good News is...

...the results from all 1781 Precincts in the Iowa caucuses are in:

Senator Barack Obama : 37.58%
Senator John Edwards : 29.75%
Senator Hillary Clinton : 29.47%
Governor Bill Richardson : 2.11%
Senator Joe Biden : 0.93%
Uncommitted : 0.14%
Senator Chris Dodd : 0.02%

9:12PM California time as reported by Thus not an official release of the numbers. News stations were declaring Obama the winner about an hour ago, my time. Reported record numbers of people showed up; the majority of young voters chose Obama; Clinton got 30% of the female vote, with Obama getting 35%. Some newscasters seemed surprise at the results.

Obama bloggers are full of "yippies, yeehaws" and doing victory dances 'round their living rooms. As one said: "America is back!".
