i do wonder if Romney isn't going to start swinging way, way to the right to shore up the conservatives who loathe McCain.

and Mexicans are going to be Mitt's big old pinata.

but, yeah, the story tonight is Huck. karma's a bitch, isn't it GOPers? you say religion matters, and you get a candidate who has NOTHING but his religion. at least Bush knows he's an idiot. with Huck, i'm not so sure.

Easy there. Even if she finishes third, mere percentage points behind Edwards, it doesn't mean anything yet.

Now if Obama beats her here in NH as well, then I think she's in major trouble.

And it isn't true that Huckabee will win nothing else.

I can see him moving out to South Carolina and singing gospel songs with his guitar. He can absolutely take that state.

Obama 37 to 30 a piece with the other two.

This is pretty impressive.

And if McCain were to become President, I wouldn't have to kill myself or move to Canada.

It just keeps getting more interesting.

I agree about New Hampshire, but I think this really damages her. She was supposed to be the inevitable choice. Now she's third. This will slow down momentum in New Hampshire.

Plus, there's more independents in New Hampshire. That's Obama's strong point.

I see you're reporting for CNN.

Yes, I'm a former reporter and I'm glued to it.

CNN is projecting a 37 % victory for Obama. I couldn't be happier with that result. I'm fully on board with him at this point.

Edwards and Clinton are now predicted to be tied with 30% It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

Huckabee is projected as the winner on the Republican side with 34%. Romney is in second with 25%. The biggest surprise for me is Thompson coming in third with 14%. That's a bit scary.

A poll taken by caucus goers that may have lead to Obama's likely victory is his message of change. 51% of them said change is what they're looking for over experience. If only more Americans could adopt this attitude, I think we'd be in a better place. I am surprised but extremely pleased with Obama's win. I am not too surprised with Huckabee's, and I am a bit relieved. I believe he's the lesser of all evils in the Republican field, so to speak. Any surprises for you so far?

Obama vs. McCain would be much closer than Hillary vs. McCain, definitely. There's just no comparison between the two men's records, though. I have more faith in America that they'll vote for the better man rather than that young, handsome one.

McCain vs. Hillary is the dream matchup for me, no question.

ETA: Actually, I'm not so sure. According to presidentelectionpolls.com McCain beats Obama 340-171, and Hillary 300-222.

Who knows.

I think Obama will take NH. They are close there, and the bounce will be enough. If he does so, I think you can pretty much stick a fork in Hillary.

McCain is praying for Hillary. Obama beats all of McCain, Romney and Giuliani in the national polls.

I had more faith in America too, and then they voted for the idiot in chief twice.
