We’re about three weeks away from one of the most overrated events in politics – the Iowa caucuses. Every four years the citizens of Iowa wallow in the attention from being “first in the nation” to vote in our presidential primary process. Iowa still uses the “caucus” which is an arcane process I don’t understand and won’t even attempt to describe.
Sometimes they get it right just as sometimes a blind acorn finds a squirrel. Other times not so much. Here are the recent past winners:
In 1992 Bill Clinton finished a distant 3rd with only 3% of the votes. Four years ago John McCain finished in 4th place. Even when they pick the eventual winner they don’t always pick the right candidate.
