Surprise

Iowa observations:

Ted Cruz is like a Timex watch. He took a political licking and kept on ticking. An impressive (and to me) surprise victory.

Donald Trump learned that details–such as a coherent policy and a ground game–are important. After smearing Cruz over and over in the final weeks, he turned classy in defeat–another surprise. With his aura of invincibility dimmed, I wonder how long he continues to dominate the opinion polls.

Marco Rubio ran a strong, and surprising, third. I expect him to pick up momentum and eventually win the nomination after a tough fight.

Hillary Clinton escaped by the skin of her teeth against a 74-year-old socialist. If she hangs on, she will be the weakest Democratic nominee in a generation.
