Obviously, the Democrat vote turnout was huge. But the discrepancy between party votes and placement is stunning. Check these out:
- Clinton beat McCain by almost 30,000 votes.
- McCain got almost 20,000 fewer votes than Obama, the second-place Democrat.
- Edwards, the third-place Democrat, beat Huckabee, the third-place Republican, by almost twice as many votes.
- Fred Thompson, the drafted candidate meant to save the party from mediocrity, not only came in seventh (and two spots behind write-ins), but he had 1,000 votes fewer than Kucinich, a marginal Democrat candidate.
