Month in brief:
Senator John Kerry wins in Iowa and builds momentum with a big win in New Hampshire. Howard Dean, widely seen as the frontrunner before the start of the primaries, is pushed into third place in Iowa. A change of campaign tactics boosts his position to second in New Hampshire.

Despite his success, analysts say liberal northerner John Kerry will face tough tests in forthcoming primaries in the conservative south.
