Despite trailing in the polls until this past weekend, Sen. John Kerry claims victory in Monday's Iowa caucuses. Sen. John Edwards finishes a strong second, while former Vermont governor Howard Dean places a distant third. U.S. Rep. Richard Gephardt finishes fourth and will formally drop out of the presidential race Tuesday. The focus now shifts to New Hampshire. Hear NPR's Mara Liasson.
