Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This has to dent Clinton's claim of inevitability. We will have to see if her campaign even continues to push that line. She once had a commanding lead in Iowa and had vowed not to let Iowa set back her campaign again. To that end she devoted a lot of funds, aids and prestige - to come in virtually tied with Sanders, whose chances the Mainstream Media pundits have been vigorously denigrating. In a week Sanders could well beat her in New Hampshire by double digits. Interesting times.

And, finally, we get to see Donald's claimed 'winner' status take a hit at the waterline. It remains to be seen to what extent he and his braggadocio continue to dominate coverage. The longer he is in it the better it will be for the Democrats. Meanwhile the Republican Establishment has Cruz to contend with. I have to smile.
