So, the results from the iowa caucuses are mostly in. Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz are the winners.
I am pleased that Trump and Hillery lost. I am not a fan of either Sanders or Cruz though.
With any luck Trump will lose in New Hampshire, throw a temper tantrum, and take his marbles and go back to one of his mansions to sulk. This would lance the huge boil that is distorting the republican primaries and return it to the normal six ring circus that it is.

Edits:
I guess I typed too soon. Hillery squeaked out a win. But for her, who has been running for president, off and on for the last forty years, to just barely win against Bernie, who she had a forty or fifty point lead on just a few months ago, this is still effectively a loss.

A couple of the less than one percenters have suspended their campaigns, as is normal in a crowded field. These are the ones who are mostly running this year to get their name out on the national stage, preparing for elections down the road.
