What a disappointment the Iowa caucuses have been. Generally speaking Democrats are the ones that are supposed to believe in identity politics and Republicans are supposed to believe in principles. Iowa seems to prove just the opposite.

Democrats have selected Barack, even though 99% of voters are white, rejecting the I-vote-for-the-person-whose-like-me approach. Evangelical Republicans, on the other hand, voted for the evangelical even though he is not a conservative, precisely because he was the most like them.
