That’s what Jon Huntsman, in an interview on Morning Joe, called the results in Iowa. An assessment given from someone who wasn’t in the state, but watching from his seat in New Hampshire. New Hampshire, where Huntsman’s hoping to pull off a Santorum-like victory… a slow steady-eddie, door-to-door campaign to something better than 7th place.
Speaking of that “victory” in Iowa (and losing by 8 votes can still be called a victory) - is it actually a negative for the Republican establishment? A fractured GOP seems to be the only clear thing to come out of the caucus. While the party fights over grabbing one vote here and there, and who’s more conservative than the next… will they lose sight of their real goal in November? Defeating President Obama? The people in the White House sure hope so!
One of our panelists today is Bill Burton, a former member of the Obama White House.
