All you need to know

Everything you need to know about the Iowa caucus results is right here in this Daily Kos post.

Total Voter Turnout (approximate)

Percentage of total vote

24.5% Obama
20.5% Edwards
19.8% Clinton
11.4% Huckabee (R)

In other words, Obama, Edwards and Clinton each separately had twice as much support as Huckabee, the top GOP finisher. So when the wingnuts are squealing about how Hillary came in third, they need to be reminded that even the third place finisher on the Democratic side has twice as many votes as the GOP frontrunner.

But I do hope that Huckabee hangs in there and becomes the GOP nominee, because he makes George W. Bush seem like an intellectual when it comes to foreign policy knowledge.
