In a country where the popular vote in a presidential election can be rendered moot by the machinations of the Electoral College, the abuse of a Supreme Court ruling and a candidate who, in the end, just didn't have the balls to fight for a final count, last night's show of hands in Iowa, big picture-wise, was utterly meaningless.
To paraphrase MacBeth:
[THE IOWA CAUCUSES ARE] but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Remember: Bill Clinton didn't win in Iowa OR New Hampshire.
