Cafferty: Obama’s historic win?

Barack Obama's huge win in Iowa last night was characterized this way by Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal this morning: "His takedown of Mrs. Clinton was the softest demolition in the history of falling buildings."

But make no mistake. A demolition it was. What we don't know yet is whether Obama's victory was an anomaly created by the polarizing nature of Hillary Clinton combined with the widespread opposition to President Bush or whether we saw the start of something truly historic last night. I will wager you this: if he wins, students in classrooms around the country will be listening to Obama's victory speech last night 20 years from now. It was beyond brilliant.

It's not just that Obama won, it's how he did it.
