Hillary Clinton eked out a narrow victory in the Iowa caucuses, winning 22 delegates to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ 21 delegates—with one delegate left undecided—but the virtual tie was cause for celebration for both candidates.

Clinton touted the narrow win as proof that she’s learned the lessons of her 2008 loss where a disastrous third-place showing in Iowa hobbled her once inevitable candidacy, and proved that she could hold her own when turnout is high thanks to enthusiasm for a rival.
