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 http://www.iowacaucusresults.com/ 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!".
