Iowa caucuses: video commentary from our Observer George Shantzek

George Shantzek is a media specialist originally from Miami. Here are his initial reactions to the results of the Iowa caucuses: The winners, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee, have something in common, he says; they both preach major change in Washington. Of the former vice presidential candidate John Edwards, who finished second and before the favourite, Hillary Clinton, Shantzek says that he made a comeback through an aggressive and populist campaign that never stopped condemning the American health-care system. As a humorous side to the caucuses, take a look at ultra-conservative Mike Huckabee's "Chuck Norris Approved" campaign advert that was a hit on Youtube.
