US elections. A turning point?

Tracking Obama I am noting the Iowa contest where he has become front runner for the Democratic nomination with Clinton taking third place behind John Edwards. Not as expected. Similarly Mike Huckabee gained a nomination for Republicans on a low budget campaign. What will happen in New Hampshire? The link is to the Washington Post 5.1.2008.
Not that Clinton is letting it rest there and she repeatedly attacked Obama on policy, such as health, pointing out that rhetoric is not the same as action.

The way it looks at the moment is that Obama will repeat his victory having been trailing by 3 points and moving into a lead of 10. Two defeats will leave Clinton forlorn. But then a lot can happen in politics.
