Barack Obama found his first victory on his road to the White House in Iowa after winning the Democratic Primary today with an impressive 38 percent. Obama took the lead over rivals John Edwards and Hilary Clinton, who both fell to two and three, respectively.
Obama's win essentially makes him the candidate to beat among Democrats, and a win next week in New Hampshire could put him in prime position to capture the nomination. The next big show down would be in South Carolina, where more than half of the voters in the Democratic primary are likely to be Black.
