Obama has triumphed so far, being in the lead with 38% in Iowa. Will America see him with all the answers to lead the way forward? It was thought Hillary Clinton was in with a chance according to media in the past few months.
Edwards came in second getting 30%, Clinton holding now hanging in there at 29%. On hearing these results a number of Barrack Obama supporters jumped out of their seats with sheer joy, shouting "we did it”.
"On this January night, at this defining moment in history, you have done what the cynics said we couldn't do," Obama told his jubilant supporters Thursday night. "We are choosing hope over fear, we are choosing unity over division”.
