Hillary, after dipping in the polls post-Iowa, "came back" to win, which was what had been predicted for months.

Hillary 39%
Obama 37%
Edwards 17%
RIchardson 5%
Kucinich 1%

John McCain, saying he's too old to be called a kid, regardless of the preceding adjective, said, "This is what a comeback looks like."

McCain 37%
Romney 32%
Huckabee 11%
Giuliani 9%
Paul 8%
Thompson 1%

And under the excitement of the horse race, which is now very wide open, we have the questions Bev Harris and others have been asking about the trustworthiness of the voting system, with one person in charge of 80% of the vote counting in NH.

Former Olympics exec Romney spun his loss as "another silver."



Huckabee was gleeful for coming in third ahead of Giuliani, who pulled 9%, barely edging out Ron Paul, who pulled 8%.

Richardson pulled 5%. Kucinich and Thompson pulled 1% and Gravel, Dodd, Biden and Hunter pulled zilch.

Women desserted Obama for Hillary. Students and under 30s didn't come out in NH like they did in Iowa for Obama.

Did Hillary's moment of tears help, in spite of the corpsestream media's attempts to "Howard-Deanize" it?

Next stops Michigan, South Carolina, Nevada, Florida, Maine, then, on Feb 5-- Super Tuesday... It's a miracle, the stamina these politicians possess.
