As mi amiga, bravenak says.. "History is Made.. Iowa goes Clinton for the first time ever!! It goes to a WOMAN for the first time ever!! History MADE!!"

I don't care who says Hillary doesn't have "momentum".. especially corporate media pundits.. Hillary Won Iowa.

64. Strictly about Kaua'i!

I remember good old Poipu (never got to Princeville)...........

It's miserable here in Sprout City, not that Düsseldorf is much better, and I have to be in Berlin all weekend.

As for Hillary winning, I still say it reminds me more of the Harvard-Yale game of 1968 than anything else ("Harvard wins 29-29!"

I'll bet Trump is wondering who pulled the rug out from under him, although the prospect of a gloating Cruz is about as palatable to me as reviving the House Un-American Activities Committee, and having Rolls-Ryan appoint Louie Gohmert to chair it.

My younger daughter spent two years of high school in Waimea on the Big Island, and her graduation, now 13 years ago, was the last time I was out there. Hawai'i is 12 time zones away for us--literally halfway around the world. But still: too long, too long.....................

3. Official Statement from the IDP Chair

DES MOINES—IDP Chair Dr. Andy McGuire released the following statement on tonight’s 2016 Iowa Democratic Precinct Caucuses:


“Tonight we saw an historically close Iowa Democratic Caucus that featured one of our strongest turnouts ever and passion and energy from Democrats all across our state.

“After a year where Iowans took the time to see candidates, ask them thoughtful questions, and became volunteers and leaders themselves, tonight 171,109 Iowa Democrats came together with their neighbors to engage in a spirited discussion on the future of our country. We saw passionate, engaged Iowans turn out in all 99 counties, and for the first time ever, the IDP ran both a Tele-Caucus and satellite caucus locations, fulfilling our promise to expand participation and improve on an already incredible process.

“The results tonight are the closest in Iowa Democratic caucus history. Hillary Clinton has been awarded 699.57 state delegate equivalents, Bernie Sanders has been awarded 695.49 state delegate equivalents, Martin O’Malley has been awarded 7.68 state delegate equivalents and uncommitted has been awarded .46 state delegate equivalents. We still have outstanding results in one precinct (Des Moines—42), which is worth 2.28 state delegate equivalents. We will report that final precinct when we have confirmed those results with the chair.

“I want to congratulate all of our candidates for running terrific campaigns and thank them for taking the time to travel across our great state to share their visions for the country. In particular, I want to thank Governor Martin O’Malley for the time he devoted to meeting with Iowans and for sharing his vision of continued progress all across our state. His distinguished record as a mayor and governor as well as his plans for continued progress inspired the people of our state, and I look forward to his continued service to the nation and our working families.

“Finally, I want to thank the thousands of volunteers who helped run our precinct caucus locations all across the state. And most of all, I want to thank all of the Iowa Democrats who came out tonight to caucus and make their voice heard.”

Poor losers.. like I said in the other post.. bears repeating..

"EPIC FAIL: Elite Media Furiously Spin Defeat of Their Anti-Hillary Agenda in Iowa"

•The first was Trump versus reality: Reality won.
•The second was Hillary versus Bernie: Hillary won.
•The third was the elite anti-Hillary media versus the people: The people won.

They're so desperate to get another Republican into the White House. All I heard and saw were how Cruz and Rubio were fantastic and winners, and other miscellaneous b.s. they were able to throw out there because they have a serious case of the sadz.

I am heading back to bed now. I couldn't get back to sleep until I checked and to my relief I find Hillary Clinton is the first woman to win Iowa, and now having kept Sanders from winning in a critical state for him, and that favored his demographics, we will see a Madame President soon! Now I can relax and get back to sleep.
Congratulations are in order, and party on!

It was a busy night for me at the Hillary Facebook page late last night and well in to the morning. Talk about banning!! Just like here, they are rude and bitter. They can care less that it is a page set up for supporters of Hillary's.

I'm not the same person I was in '08 - this time around I'm not giving up on our gal and by giving up meaning I am not going to keep quiet, which means on a Facebook page that I created for supporters of hers WILL NOT be taken over by the Bitter Bern Brigade.

And I've noticed that our wonderful moderators of this group will only tolerate so much of them and then it's adios.

51. Waiting for SC and super tuesday

 

If the first primary were held in say Texas, Bernie and his bro army would already be a distant memory.

Congrats to all the volunteers in Iowa, you guys are awesome!

Hillary WON!!!

53. Excellent Thought, workingclass! Congratulations and Mahalo to All the Volunteers in Iowa!

You did Wonderfully!

Before we knew who won.. I was thinking.. 8 years ago I went into work and said "Obama won Iowa!".. Now later today I can say to my sister in California.. "Hillary Won Iowa!!!"

I know President Obama is happy, too!

58. Great day!!!

I have to laugh at the Bernie Bots who are crying it's a tie... Bernie won, too. Last time I looked, my college basketball team gets a W if they win by one.... the loser.. well, they lose... not matter how well they play the game. Second place is the just the first loser.

Next week, I fear she may have more issues, being in Bernie's back yard but I have faith in Hillary... she'll do well....

68. If bernie had won by this margin it would be hailed as a victory.. but, since it's Hillary they

won't acknowledge it.

Well too bad.. Hillary WON and she made history as the first woman to win Iowa and the first Clinton!

Here's some tweets on her Victory, CherokeeDem..

84. Bernie LOST and they are saying he won!

I miss the old days when we could mock the GOP for being the party that was out of touch with reality.

85. Of course they are! They can't handle the loss. I clicked on DU last night

it goes to the Home Page before I get to Hill's Group and I saw this thing trending..

"berni won".. I'm sure it had 100s of Rec... I just laughed. No. bern lost and Hillary Won.. there fixed it.

look at it this way.. now we have twice as much to mock.

62. A close win is till a win and vastly better than

any kind of loss. Go Hillary. Time to get more aggressive with Bernie and his fantasy platform.

66. 23 Hillary, 21 Sanders.

MSNBC is adding in the committed super-delegates from Iowa - makes it 29-21!

29-21. Not a 'virtual tie.'

74. That's the key factor here!

I don't care percentages, what are the total number of delegates. That is what they are vying for right? And our girl came out ahead!

73. Lady Luck was with the lady, when it came to the coin tosses! Talk about a time-honored tradition...

So much wailing and gnashing of teeth about that -- but it is legal, it's written into the Iowa caucus rules, and it has lots of precedence in American history.

I was amazed when hubby walked in to tell me about that, and then I laughed, because that's how I won Granny's
cabinet, only with dice. It was part of my mother's estate and she got it from her mother, and there are four sibs. It's not a fancy antique, but it has a lot of family history.

Our brother in law introduced D&D rules to help us decide disputed items before they could become disputed.

But boy, was my youngest brother steamed. (Probably had something to do with me singing "Go Granny Go" while rattling the dice.) Twice we threw exactly the same. On the third round I won the toss.

What are the everloving odds? I never play games of chance.

Last night in Iowa, Luck was with the Lady.

80. Love the dice story, Hekate! Si, Lady Luck was with Hillary on the coin tosses last night..

Good Karma! Turns out the Tosses didn't have anything to do with who won Iowa, though. So those complaining about it are just wasting everyone's time.

86. about those coin flips

 

http://www.npr.org/2016/02/02/465268206/coin-toss-fact-check-no-coin-flips-did-not-win-iowa-for-hillary-clinton

"Except that doesn't tell the whole story. In fact, there were at least a dozen tiebreakers — and "Sen. Sanders won at least a handful," an Iowa Democratic Party official told NPR.

Gone unmentioned so far is that even if Clinton won that Miracle Six — and there were no other coin tosses — it would make little difference in the outcome. That is, in part, because of the complicated way Iowa Democrats allocate their delegates — and what was being reported on election night and what wasn't."
