I for Obama

The latest poll from the Des Moines Register gave Barack Obama an indisputable lead over Hillary Clinton and John Edwards - most every other poll has had them running neck and neck and neck. With other primaries so close on the heels of Iowa, I'm not sure how significant a win is here (unless the margin of victory is significant).

However, the Washington Post mined the data and found something much more interesting - Obama seems to be making headway with independent voters. Of course the proof is in the caucus, but if Obama can turn out a substantial enough base of young and independent voters, he might have found his recipe to win the nomination.
