NH should have been a slam dunk for her instead of her maintaining a narrow 2 - 4% lead with slightly more than 1/2 precincts reporting. The college town have not weighed in yet though. Senator Clinton has done well with women, seniors, union workers and blue collar workers in NH so far. Any victory by Hillary with less than a 4% lead over Obama will reveal her vulnerability. Edwards who's splitting votes with Obama hasn't dropped out of the race yet. After that point, we'll have a whole new dynamic.

Vulnerability, schulnerability. You're as bad as the gasbags on TV. None of you know NUTHIN'!

The PEOPLE are deciding this nomination, NOT the pundits. (Which is as it should be.)

And the fat lady AIN'T SINGIN'! Because she hasn't decided what to to sing yet.

Nobody in this country wants things to actually change. We just want to keep electing the same people over and over. The people we like. The names we hear the most. The mindless rhetoric repeated ad nauseum, the lies spoon fed to the American public. Why don't we just crown a Bush and a Clinton and alternate for the rest of time?

Yes Pj- as hard as it is to believe the polls were WRONG- AGAIN! Just like they were in 2000...and 2004....and 2006. I'm dumbfounded.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Did Obama really lose yesterday's double-digit lead?

Or are the pollsters really screwing up?

Well, the polls are hardly ever accurate. I think Hillary Clinton owes this win to the women voters.

most likely she benefited from the weather which allowed her target audience in nh (old people) to make it to the polls. we'll know more when the breakdowns come out, but that's my bet.

Unlike Iowa, she won women and especially non-married women. She also did well with the over 35-ers.

Well I'm just happy that this nomination will have to be won vote by vote by vote, like the good old days.

On to:

Michigan 1/15
Nevada 1/19
South Carolina 1/26
Florida 1/29
and then Super Tuesday 2/5

This isn't the overwhelming victory the media will try to make it out to be though. Really, the race is suddenly a lot more interesting. In retrospect perhaps the worst thing that could have happened was to give a free ride to either Clinton or Obama. Both candidates have had strong starts and now they're going to actually have to fight for their votes.

Exactly, maybe someone that could really be a good president with experience and good ideas, like RICHARDSON could get back in the race.

It's just interesting how so many of you were almost at the point of saying that Obama should me measuring the curtains for the White House. I hate to say "I told you so" but, I told you so. Let's not forget the "let's pick the running mates for Huckabee & Obama" thread:

https://www.broadwayworld.com/board/readmessage.cfm?boardid=2&boardname=off&thread=953475

As I said in that thread, "I think that this thread is quite a bit premature. A win in Iowa does not a nominee make. One should wait at least until after Super Tuesday."

I still believe that even after tonight's results from NH.

Some of you have no sense of history and just jump on anything that you hear on television. It ain't over yet and will not be over for a while, on either side.

Isn't it really about the number of delegates each candidate sends to the national convention? In that case it is currently a tie in NH. (At least by the Yahoo! election tracker.) This definitely gives Hillary some much needed momentum though.

I still hope for Obama, but I also love seeing each state being fought tooth and nail. It's good for the voters since it will force candidates to discuss their views with voters in more states than if NH was a landslide victory for Obama. It seems the younger age group didn't turn out with strong numbers which is disheartening. My generation needs to get more involved in the decisions made in this country or we are going to screw ourselves over. (Please correct me if I am wrong on any of my data.)

Obama and Hillary can't be measured by history because there have never been candidates like them. I've been saying Obama can take it for a year now because I believed in him (and I don't see much point in being passionate about something you don't believe in). I still do, just as (I'm assuming, correct me if I'm wrong) you believe in Clinton.

It's going to be a long race...

Yeah... because there's nothing significant at all about a black man winning a farming state in the midwest that's 95 % white.

Hillary is one of the toughest people around. She continually takes hits from all sides and survives. She's been hit by the health care industry, Congress, political pundits, men, women and most of all her husband. Still she stands and moves forward. You may not like her, but you have to respect her resilence. Well done and the only thing better than seeing this victory, is listening to the dumb ass political "experts" who were wrong. Sweet!!!!
The only review of a show that matters is your own.

Your "there have never been candidates like them" statement cuts a wide swath. There HAVE been candidates like them in many aspects of their campaigns. Maybe if you were more specific about what you were trying to say, like what you said in your response, your point would have been more clear.

and I still stand by my "let's pick running mates for Huckabee & Obama" thread.

Last year this time any claim that Obama would lose narrowly to Clinton in NH and Huckabee would come in a respectable 3rd would have been dismissed as lunacy.

This is turning into a very interesting race.
