Let the record reflect that at 4pm central time, I posted my prediction for the Iowa Caucus at OliverWillis.com. I predicted that the order for the top four candidates would be: Kerry, Dean, Edwards and then Gephardt. With 75% of the precincts reporting, looks like Kerry will walk away with a win. Yeah! Hoping this will provide some much needed energy and momentum to the Senator’s campaign. Governor Dean has a lot of good qualities, but he’s too much of a loose canon for me. He’s like a bad boy that’s good to date for a short term, but not someone you want to take home to meet your parents. Kerry is that guy. As former New Hampshire Gov. Jeanne Shaheen said last fall:
“John Kerry is the only Democratic candidate with the combination of experience and leadership on national security and a lifetime of fighting for the issues critical to Democrats we need to beat George Bush and take this country in a new direction.”
So congrats Senator Kerry! Now let’s see what you can do in New Hampshire.
