What a big night for Iowa. On one side you had a David vs Goliath race, and with the Democrats? It was the flip of a coin.
By the end of the night, it came down to Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders in a virtual tie. Before all the votes were even tallied one Democrat had already dropped while some precincts were reportedly digging for change.
I’m sure if you asked those in the Clinton campaign whether they thought Bernie Sanders was a real and viable threat they would have laughed at you. On the flip side, if you ask the Sanders campaign they likely would have said they had a strong shot to win.
At the end of the night, it came down to six precincts with Clinton and Sanders tied both with 49%. So how did they decide who the winner was?
They flipped a coin.
That’s right. They flipped a coin!
Even though Hillary Clinton won all 6 coin tosses – don’t ask how that honestly happens – but the real winner was the guy that dropped out, O’Malley. He’s the real winner because now he can actually go back home, be with his family and get back to normal everyday life.
But, for so long now Hillary Clinton has been thinking that she is the sure shot winner to become the next president. She thought this in 2008 against Barack Obama who was the underdog. And again, in 2012, she got snubbed by Barack Obama.
Hillary has an entitlement mentality where she needs to be handed everything on a silver platter. And that’s just not the case. She has a real challenge on her hands with Sanders.
And even for the democrat party as a whole, they have a decision to make.
Do they choose the lesser of two evils: Hillary Clinton who is being investigated in more ways than one, and proven time after time she’s not capable of answering that 3 a.m. phone call, or do they choose Bernie Sanders who is an unapologetic socialist?
Or do we do like they did in Iowa and just flip a coin?
