Sometimes that is the only word that comes to mind when the impossible becomes political reality:

There are times when watching a political result that all you can say is "wow." Last night's Iowa Caucuses were such a moment. This writer prays his wife will forgive him for being up until after 4:00am awaiting the final result. We've been up all night to await election outcomes before, but I can't recall the last time I was up all night awaiting an outcome during primary and caucus season.

When the final result came in, even though the numbers showed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at the top literally by just a few votes, it is former Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pennsylvania) who can be the one to claim victory. Within a matter of a month, he came from around 3% of the vote to effectively tie at the top of the caucus margins.
