And though he still finished second in Iowa, Edwards couldn't get much credit for it in the news media. Here's how the Washington Post reported it online:Liberal media my blue donkey ass!
"DES MOINES, Jan. 3 -- Sen. Barack Obama, riding a message of hope and change and buoyed by extraordinary turnout, decisively won the Iowa Democratic caucuses Thursday night, dealing a significant setback to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the battle for the party's 2008 presidential nomination.
"With all of the state's 1,781 precincts reporting, Obama (Ill.) won 38 percent of the delegates being awarded in the competition. Clinton (N.Y.) took 29.5 percent to run third behind former senator John Edwards (N.C.), who drew 29.8 percent."
You'd have thought Edwards had come in third -- and in the Post story, he did.
