107. First off - Kerry won by some pretty hefty margins
The results were also pretty consistent with polls. Cspan broadcast 2 locations of the Iowa caucus - What was clear to me watching it was that not only were there more Kerry voters, but they seemed far more aware of why they were for him. (You could hear the conversations.) The same was true per a delegate to the Washington state conference. Kerry won the nomination fair and square. He essentially was running under the radar screen, until he won Iowa and NH. He was also the best in the Democratic primary debates - even per Chris Mathews, who seemed to dislike him.

If you look at his history - he never was "the golden Haired boy" in the party. He has always been very independent. (In BCCI he fought his own party as well as the Republicans - to close down a terorist bank. ) It would be easy to make the conjecture that Clinton dirty laundry (Indonesian Bankers) could have made him, not eager to have Kerry as the candidate. Clinton's comment that Clark and Hillary were the only stars the Democrats have, doesn't sound like a Kerry endorsement.
