In the odd chance you're reading it here first, last night Iowa hosted one of the closest candidate-selection races in US history. Rick (do a google image search) Santorum and Mitt Romney ran down-to-the-wire photo finish. Ex-Governor of Massachusetts stuck his tongue out and won by a virtual-tie margin of 8 votes.
That's 8 out of the 122,000 folks that turned out to vote. Don't tell me your vote doesn't count.
Ron Paul’s all-in campaign did not result in a win - as predicted here - but in fact, third. On the bright side, that's ahead of Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Michele Bachmann, respectively. John Huntsman, who looked to the brilliance of Rudy Guliani's campaign -- not only spent all his time in New Hampshire, but openly mocked Iowa. Huntsman came in last.
