Two newcomers stormed the gates in Iowa and came away with dramatic victories Thursday night. Sen. Barack Obama's (D., Ill.) win was historic because only one other black candidate -- Jesse Jackson -- has won a caucus or a primary. And Mike Huckabee rose from relative obscurity by preaching his way into the hearts and minds of Christian conservatives.From here, the election can unfold in two ways: the Iowa winners could hold on to their momentum, or the losers may come from behind. I see the losers getting revenge in New Hampshire on Tuesday. Whether or not you support Obama, everyone should take a moment to recognize the significance of his win. The United States has long symbolized equality and freedom. Sadly, we also have had a history of slavery and then segregation that belies our stated principles. I hope our country can leave the wounds of history behind.
