Obama takes Iowa (nobody knows where, though)

According to semi-reliable sources (CNN), Obama and Huckabee have won the Demican and Republicrat caucuses in Iowa. Whoop-de-do.

I'm going to make a prediction: the Republicans will lose the presidency; Obama will win, but mainly because he will take a brave stand firmly in the center of absolutely every fucking thing you can think of. I think the Republicans will go down to a serious defeat; but it'll be their own fault. The Democrats will win through no credit to their own positions (assuming that not having a position equals having a position). There will be nothing earth-shaking or truly innovative from the Democrats. They're worse than a bunch of social workers...

I mean Obama may not be the Democratic candidate; maybe it'll be Clinton, maybe Edwards. It doesn't matter: nothing will change too much. None of the campaign donors will find anything to be offended by. There'll be no nationalization of health care nor phone companies nor oil companies. The profit-motive, "free market capitalism," and corporate take-over will continue. Only the style will change.
