Integrity Analysis: What the Iowa Caucus Results Say About the Importance of Integrity

by Dr. David Gruder

As the pundits analyze the meaning of underdogs Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee winning the Iowa Caucuses for their respective political parties, they might overlook the most obvious messages Iowans of both parties were joined sending.

The obvious analysis is that both these candidates are seen more outsiders than insiders, meaning that Iowans are united in wanting change. The more useful analysis, though, is that Iowans are advocating that this year’s presidential race needs to be between two presidential candidates who are viewed as having the most integrity, character, honesty, and truthfulness , a more heart-oriented approach, and an ability to unite rather than continue our dangerous trend of divisive polarized spin-oriented politics.

Stay tuned as we find out if these largely unspoken priorities turn out to be shared by the rest of the American people in the upcoming presidential primaries.
