Is anyone surprised at the results of the Iowa caucus? The two winners - Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee - offered a platform that was clearly different from the other contenders. The voters took note. It is no longer “politics as usual” in this 2008 presidential election. There is now no doubt that the American people want a real change.
This presidential campaign is no longer an ethnicity, religious or gender issue - it’s an authenticity issue. Obama and Huckabee won because consumers and voters are demanding authenticity.
