Wow...what a win for Obama last night. He won the Iowa caucus garnering 38% of the vote, outpacing Edwards (30%) and Clinton (29%). This should provide great momentum for the upcoming New Hampshire Primary in only 4 days.
Obama's speech was absolutely exhilarating. He is a tremendous orator. He speaks with clarity, vision, and conviction. His intonation is unparalleled, and his style seems to be a mix of JFK and Martin Luther King. The US certainly could use someone like Obama to take over the White House in 2008, to give us a confident leader and restore respect for our Presidency. Some people may be concerned about his lack of experience, but the President is more about image and picking a good cabinet. He could good people around him like Bill Richardson and Joe Biden, who have tons of experience, but not the charisma.
