Obama and Huckabee win in Iowa, now it's on to New Hampshire

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Several of the presidential contenders, including Iowa caucus winners Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee, will campaign today in New Hampshire, where voters go to the polls next Tuesday. In Iowa last night, Democrat Obama finished well ahead of second place finisher John Edwards, saying the result is a defining moment that proved the cynics wrong. Republican Huckabee says his win over big spending Mitt Romney proves the power of people over the purse. In second place on the Democratic side, John Edwards says the results show that voters are choosing change over the status quo, and he is ready to fight for that change in New Hampshire. Finishing a close third, Hillary Rodham Clinton told supporters she is ready for the rest of this campaign, and she is ready to lead. The Republican runner-up, Mitt Romney says he plans to come back to Iowa in the general election as the Republican nominee. And Republican Fred Thompson says he still has "a ticket to the next dance." But Senators Chris Dodd and Joe Biden are dropping out of the White House race after poor showings in Iowa.
