On Iowa caucus night in 1980, I was the primary editor on the Republican story. Here we call George H.W. Bush the winner on deadline, with, from left, Dan Petersen, Paul Leavitt, Merrill Perlman, Michael Gartner, Jim Gannon, Jim Flansburg and Arnie Garson helping/watching. As an editor and reporter for four different newspapers, I have covered seven Iowa caucus campaigns: http://stevebuttry.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/memories-of-covering-seven-iowa-caucuses-in-four-decades/
