    President Bush won the Iowa vote, after enough absentee ballots were counted to declare victory.

    It took until the weekend for the totals (Bush = 745,980, Kerry = 732,764) with the number of outstanding ballots too few to change the outcome for the state to be "called". Iowa will not certify the results until Nov. 29.

    Iowa had been on the FRONT BURNER of Presidential politics since Kerry began campaigning in Iowa nearly three years ago. His surprising win in the Jan. 19 2004 caucuses over a slate of eight other candidates gave him the momentum to claim the Democratic nomination.

    After the hoopla of Election Night and the concession on Wednesday, Iowa was relegated to the BACK BURNER. Even on a Red/Blue map visible on the Evening News on Monday, Iowa was still "undeclared". Guess it is just too hard a pill for the media to swallow.

    Iowa is insignificant in more ways than one. The Democrats will continue to lose if they continue to choose their presidential candidates based on the whims of liberals in Iowa and New Hampshire.

    But who's complaining? I'm not. :D
