The Real Losers If Tonight’s Results Hold

I’m watching Kerry’s speech and it too has the requisite populist rhetoric. He also said a few nice things about Gephardt. Kerry would never be my first choice but in this field of candidates he’s the best available. I feel better than if Dean had won.

It occurred to me, though, that the real losers will be Clinton and Gore if this trend continues. The Clintons’ candidate is Wesley Clark and Gore’s candidate is Dean. Again, if the trend continues, and Kerry actually wins it will sideline both the Clintons and Gore for the next eight years.

UPDATE: Professor Bainbridge has an excellent roundup of the Iowa caucuses.
