So voters move on from Iowa, a rather unrepresentative State of the Union. It has too few minorities to be indicative of the entire nation. Handicapped voters have a great problem voting in the caucuses. If they cannot arrive to vote in the specified time they are not allowed to vote. Now, following New Hampshire, states such as Nevada (January 19), South Carolina (January 26) and Florida (January 29) will hold their primaries before the big vote of many states on February 5.

Romney said it is a 50-inning ballgame. We probably will not need to wait for all 50 states to vote to know the nominees but the next round of primaries and caucuses will be a chance for both Romney and Clinton to recover. Clinton’s third-place showing in Iowa has been suppressed by the so-called mainstream media. They have highlighted the Obama vote without mentioning Clinton. One thing is clear. The invincibility of Hillary Clinton has imploded. Given the showing of former Senator John Edwards (D-NC), who came in second, it is clear that Clinton has been repudiated 70-30. Back in 1968 there was a New Nixon. Will there be a new Hillary Clinton?
