Iowa: Kerry wins, Gebhardt to drop out
I don't think anybody will seriously miss Gebhardt. That leaves Dean, Kerry, Clark, & Edwards, with Leiberman, Kucinich, & Sharpton still making appearances.
-The media will almost certainly paint this as a huge defeat for Dean, if it is or not. Finishing third is obviously disappointing for the "front runner."
-Kerry obviously gets a big boost.
-Clark was not really playing, and his NH showing will be huge for him. He still got 3 more delegates than Leiberman.
-Edwards' campaign has to be pleased. Very strong second for the young, Southern Senator.
From the Times: "almost half of Mr. Kerry's supporters and half of Mr. Edwards' supporters said they decided to support them in the last week."
