Barack Obama has won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa. And as he put it this evening in a stirring speech to his supporters, this is the moment. This is the time America will remember as the beginning of a new era, the end of the politics of fear, the beginning of the politics of hope.
Partisanship, special interests, and polarization in Washington. The good ol’ boys. The smoke-filled rooms. The lobbyists. The political dynasties. This is the year it ends.
It feels good to be optimistic again. It feels good to be proud of a candidate. It feels good to think that, just maybe, the system might not be broken after all.
Barack Obama made history in Iowa tonight. And then he spoke to America:
