Caucuses and Consequences

Even if you have forgotten the famous night in Iowa approximately 4 years back, when the Dean train was hit by one speech (probably just by about 60 seconds of that short speech actually), which was made so infamous by media clouding it with all the negative publicity they could, I haven’t.

It still doesn’t make sense to me why Howard Dean got what he didn’t deserve. Who was behind it? His Democratic competitors or Karl Rove or the absolutely “influenceable” & malleable American voter?

Here is the now “famous” speech..

None of that happened last night.

Was I surprised with the results? Yes for the Republican winner and No for the Democratic winner. Even though my candidate of choice was Obama at the beginning of the campaign (which was about a year ago), he certainly has failed to project a “different” and a “non-Washington politician” image, which he so proudly claims he does now. May be Kucinich would have been a great choice. Someone who represents the left side of the spectrum strongly and better than any other brainwashing political talks that the rest of the Democratic line-up indulges in.
For some strange reason, Kucinich has nothing to attract support to his camp except his beautiful wife…!

Will the Caucus results influence the New Hampshire primary? I do believe so in the case of Obama and Clinton.
The consequences? Hmmm…


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
