19. How condescending.

I would assume that most educated people know the meaning of a Pyrrhic victory. Considering that this was IA, Hillary did quite well indeed. A lot better than her husband did in 1992 and a lot better than she did in 2008.

The onus was on Sanders, Hillary didn't need to win in IA, Sanders had more to lose. Since she won by a hair, I think that both are in good shape. She finally won in IA, a state where the demographics were more propitious for Sanders, and he proved that he's a viable candidate. He will easily win in NH and then we're off to the races.

No pyrrhic victory here......
