    I felt it in my bones. So many Iowans were, fairly or unfairly, unwilling to get behind Hillary that I just knew Obama had a great shot.  Edwards was the only other strong contender, and I felt, after seeing Obama's performance, and the crowd he drew in February 2007, that he could win if the campaign was good enough.

    Early in the Diary I wrote that Jesse Jacksom had connected with struggling Iowa farmers at one point. I did remember that, and it's one of the reasons I was so sure Barack could win Iowa.

    I kept telling the staff people "don't worry about Edwards, all you have to do is beat Clinton, because that's what the media will see.  But, we got the best of both scenarios - he beat 'em both.

    Educate yourself. Think for yourself. Be yourself. Act for others.
