    Even her own people are surprised. I predict if she wins, she will cry each time the camera is on her. :(

    Well, she certainly humanized herself which she really needed to do.

    I think the people of New Hampshire don't like having the press annoint their candidates... same as the people of Iowa.

    3,000 votes between them with 45% of precincts in. It's stunning. And I'm enjoying this election season tremendously.

    Late deciders split evenly between Hillary and Obama. What happened to the Obama momentum everyone was talking about? Also, according to exit polls Hillary beat Obama 47 to 30 among women voters, whereas she actually lost that vote in Iowa. What has happened in the past few days? Are Iowa voters that different from New Hampshire voters? Oviously they are.

    It certainly is interesting, as it always is. I'd be "enjoying" it a lot more if I preferred any of the candidates.

    I think Hill sharpened her attacks on Obama. This is real interesting. If Hillary does win, even by a small margin, she is going to reveal her claws and fangs from now on. I predict the gloves will come off.

    I'd be okay with any of the democratic candidates. I'm just afraid Mike Bloomberg is going to run third-party and mess up the whole thing. The only third party candidate should be Ron Paul... makes the white house a gimme for the dems. :clap2:

    Doesn't matter how many 'third' or 'twentieth' parties join in, my guess is Obama is destined. What happens after that, we'll see.

    Bloomberg is a Repub who was a Dem, so I am not sure how that would shake out. He has emphatically said that he will not run, like poiliticians don't lie....HA

    I do think either Ron Paul or Huck will run third party. If they do, the Repubs are cooked.

    No he's not. He's an Independant who was a Republican. In the last couple of days, his people have been saying he's exploring the idea of a run.

    I agree with you about Paul or Huckabee... but I don't think the evangelicals can run their own candidate to any effect. I think Paul makes the best 3rd party guy... and yes... the republicans are toast if that happens. *j doing happy dance*
