While CNN and Fox have both called Iowa for Mike Huckabee, it's going to be a while before we know what's what on the Democratic side. With 66 percent of the precincts reporting, Barack Obama has 35 percent of the vote and Hillary Clinton and John Edwards have 31 percent each. Bill Richardson and Joe Biden brings up the rear with 2 percent and 1 percent, respectively.
