After months of predictions of a two-man race between former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and Rep. Richard Gephardt, the Iowa caucuses became an extremely tight contest in the final days before Monday's votes. Polls suggested a horse race, but in the end, Sen. John Kerry came out the clear victor. NPR's Tavis Smiley speaks with political pundit Ron Walters and NPR's Ken Rudin.
