it's good news indeed, but NH voted for kerry so the trend was already under way also 2 congressmen and governor are dems.

I agree with Steve and Kos. Many women saw the incessant media replaying of Clinton's almost-tearful moment, recalled the times they had been disadvantaged by being labelled overly emotional, and decided not to let this happen to Senator Clinton. I propose we label this the Lehrer Effect.

One very important newsworthy issue from New Hampshire seems to not be getting much discussion: NH usually goes GOP in the National Election and yet the voters voted Democrat in a remarkably high percentage regardless of which Democrat got each individual's vote. Will we see the last bastion of Republicanism finally swing into the New England Democratic Family Block?

Why is the narrative claiming that Hillary was ganged up on in the debate? She attacked both Edwards and Obama, perhaps strategically, and so it was no suprise that they both defended themselves.

Kos says the following, which makes sense:

The more she's attacked on personal grounds, the more sympathy that real person will generate, the more votes she'll win from people sending a message to the media and her critics that they've gone way over the line of common decency. You underestimate that sympathy at your own peril. If I found myself half-rooting for her given the crap that was being flung at her, is it any wonder that women turned out in droves to send a message that sexist double-standards were unacceptable? Sure, it took one look at Terry McAuliffe's mug to bring me back down to earth, but most people don't know or care who McAuliffe is. They see people beating the shit out of Clinton for the wrong reasons, they get angry, and they lash back the only way they can -- by voting for her.

Don't overplay New Hampshire.

No one is more surprised by this this than Hillary Clinton, whose campaign, according to the New York Times, was projecting a 14-point loss, at the start of yesterday's voting.

The fact is, Clinton is barely more than 2 and a half points ahead of Obama, with 2% of precincts yet to report.

And by one measure -- delegates -- Obama actually WON New Hampshire.

Both Obama and Clinton were awarded 9 delegates, based on last night's results.

But Obama has 3 NH superdelegates, compared to Clinton's 2 -- meaning that Obama has 12 total delegates from New Hampshire, compared with Clinton's 11.

The Democrats, quite frankly, have backed themselves into a real corner backing Hill\Bill and I expect Richardson to fare well as a result. The animosity towards Hillary from the Red States and the progressive left, despite her impassioned rhetoric, will doom her candidacy. Obama supporters wisely knew this going in.

I expect we can look forward to another four years of Republicans in the White House.

I weep when I see the Romney\Clinton machines attribute the rhetoric populists have fought so hard to preserve to their own campaigns.

For God's Sake, no more Bushes or Clintons in the White House!!

Hillary is the quintessential gutter politician. Her smears, lies, and distortions against Obama are disgusting. She's the most ethically challenged and morally bankrupt politician in the Democratic party.
