Hillary wins! HILLARY WINS!!!
With 85% of the New Hampshire primary vote in, Clinton gets 39% or 95,000 votes and Obama gets 37% or 89,000 votes.
This is a primary folks where the candidates are vying for delegates to the conventiion. At 37 and 39%, they both get about the same amount of delegates. The winner doesn't get it all. This aint the electoral college thing.
So the main stream media is going nuts about a Clinton win. Before Iowa, Clinton was projected to win NH with double digits. Five days later she barely wins with 2%. That makes it a pretty big win for Obama as well if you're going to call the person who was tracking double digit leads in the polls up until last week a winner with 2%.
Remember that as the media whoops and shouts about the "Clinton win."
The political momentum is not on Clinton's side. She's still sliding downhill in the polls and the voting booths.
CNN is calling it a "very surprising night." Yea, I agree. Clinton edges Obama by only 2%. Whew, who'd have guessed that a week ago when Hillary was tracking a double digit lead?!
Just thought I'd interject that little piece of reality.
I gotta throw this in. . .
Chris Mathews had Tom Delay on last night. Delay was talking about McCain and "moderate" republicans with a bit of distain, so Mathews asked him to define "moderate republican."
Delay responded: "well, people who think too much."
If that doesn't say it all for the neo-con traitors. . .
