Today the Iowa caucuses will be meeting to choose their nominees for president. There have been many predictions as to who will come out on top. I don’t think any of the ones doing the predicting have any clue about what will really happen.
I remember that four years ago, many of the prognosticators saw Howard Dean as the inevitable winner of the Democrat caucuses in Iowa. Boy were they wrong. After finishing a disappointing third place, Dean put an exclamation point on his defeat with a rare display of . . . Hmm. . . Shall we say, jubilance?
We should have learned four years ago not to be surprised by surprises. Who knows what will happen by the time the caucuses finish tonight? I’ll be watching to find out.
