Congratulations To Obama And Mike Huckabee !

Posted on January 5, 2008. Filed under: US Elections 2008 | Tags: , , , , |

After Iowa ,next New Hampshire.

The results are out and Obama won with Edwards second and Clinton 3rd for the Democrats and Mike Huckabee won over Romney for the Republicans. It was the candidates message of change which won the day . The younger voters voted for Obama, while the older women voters voted for Clinton. Obama garnered 38% of the votes, Clinton 29% and Edwards 30%.

Though disappointed being on the third placing, Clinton cannot be ruled out because this is just the first primary .There are over 20 primaries and it is like a marathon. The next primary will be in New Hampshire in 5 days time on Jan 8. She has tremendous resources and her name appeal to a wider spectrum in the US. It is too early to tell the course of this election.

You can be a great and charismatic orator and issue plenty of promises but when you sit on that throne, you will not be able to carry out those promises .it is not the same when you aspire for the throne and being on the throne. It would take an experience person to know the tricks and intricacies of the government to effect changes. In that, Clinton have Bill Clinton as the master. I think she will be better placed to change things and get things done.

But an Iowa victory, while important, is no guarantee of national success. The 1992 winner for the Democrats was Tom Harkin. Trailing way behind him was Bill Clinton, who went on to capture the presidency. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7171057.stm)

Will history repeat itself?
