    ** Bye bye Dizzy Dean! **

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Sen. John Kerry's lead in New Hampshire has increased over former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean in the first tracking poll done entirely after the Iowa caucus.

    Kerry has the support of 37 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the WMUR-TV tracking poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. Dean has slipped to 19 percent. The poll has a margin of error of 4.7 percent.

    The turnaround since the Iowa caucus has been dramatic. In a tracking poll before the caucus, Kerry was second, with 24 percent support, while Dean was first, with 33 percent. Since Kerry's victory in Iowa, he has gained 13 percent, while Dean has lost 14 percent.

    Retired Gen. Wesley Clark has also slipped somewhat, with 15 percent support, compared to 18 percent on Jan. 19. Sen. John Edwards has finally shown some upward movement, with 11 percent support, compared to 8 percent previously.

    I believe we will see a Kerry-Edwards ticket come the Dem Convention.

    Dean has flamed out, big time.

    Agree with Dean, how is Lieberman doing? Not so sure that Edwards wants or needs second billing. He is untested, doubt he could win against Bush, but Kerry has serious negatives.

    The odds are that Lieberman will drop out after New Hampshire.

    Too bad - he is the only decent guy among them.

    I disagree about Edwards not being interested in the Veep spot. He is young enough to gain the Presidency via a sting as Veep. He will probably factor in wanting to pre-empt someone else from the heir apparent slot.

    WW not making a guess on Lieberman, my take from last night, he should go up, perhaps pass Clark.

    Dean is 50, not ancient, take it from one who knows.:crutch:

    Still unsure that is what he plans, it's possible he could tap into the 'anger' turn it milder and take it for a run.

    Of the candidates remaining, Kerry has the most positives I think. He's experiences, he's a Vietnam Vet, he's likeable, he's a good speaker, and he's well known.

    Edwards also has a lot of positives - good looking, good speaker, very likeable, can draw votes from both left and middle.

    Lieberman is too conservative, Dean has lost all momentum, Clark can't campaign, and Sharpton...well. I think it's between Kerry and Edwards and Kerry-Edwards ticket is not out of the question at all.
