From what I see, you guys are looking good still. Ron finished 5th sure, but it was a close race between 3rd and 5th, so its not that bad. Finishing ahead of Rudy was a good message and free press in my opinion, and people will take more notice after seeing that. Being so close to the 3rd and 4th spot which were tied is also good news.

Moving forward, Ron Paul has momentum and in my opinion some of the guys who finished ahead of him may have peaked.

Thompson and McCain will both lose steam, that is for sure. No one is taking them serious and rightly so. They are both much more famous than Ron Paul and that may have carried them through Iowa somewhat, but they arent gaining momentum, they are just there...

Guliani looked foolish in Iowa, simple as that. If anyone cares, almost everyone I know in Canada thinks hes a snake in the grass, hopefully most of you guys feel the same way. Enough slime imo.

Huckabee. The bible pounding will only take him so far. From what I have read, Iowa is/was heavily in favour of a Huckabee type candidate. I think he has peaked, and can only get worse from here on out.

Romney, I cant stand this guy.

Ron Paul, a good double digit showing, ahead of Rudy shows he is a contender, it is more publicity for him, something he needs. It can only get better for him.

These are just opinions from a Canadian =). Good luck and keep your heads up.

And to those of you crying in your soup. Get up, rub some dirt on your booboo, and get the hell back in there and fight.

Hats off to all the hard workers in Iowa who helped achieve the result!

Off topic, I know, but I don't like the Canadian system one bit. Party leaders control EVERYTHING, especially in a majority government. The leaders are chosen by card carrying members only and often times seats are won by Socialists (NDP, I believe) because votes got split between the conservatives and the liberals. The senate is worse than useless and you get the stupid rare occurrence when the leader of the country cant leave on a diplomatic mission because his one house vote is vital to making sure he stays in office due to *Confidence* votes.

Bah.

But I hope your doing good there, say Hi to the Harper family if you see them. :P

And people wonder why Americans get a bad wrap? Never miss a chance to run your mouth do ya? =). I didn't make this thread to debate Canadian politics, I made it to wish you all good luck, and to praise your work.

Good luck!
