Fox News calls Iowa for Obama
Fox News has called the Democratic caucus for Barack Obama. This is a bad blow for Hillary Clinton's campaign. However it is not fatal as the Clinton machine has large financial resources and a powerful campaign organization in New Hampshire. Clinton will enter the Democratic primary in New Hampshire as favourite. However Obama now has momentum. His victory over Clinton is particularly noteworthy as it has occurred in a state which is 95% white. It appears that he secured a higher percentage of female votes than Clinton.
