    Clinton, McCain Win in New Hampshire

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton won New Hampshire's Democratic primary Tuesday night in a startling upset, defeating Sen. Barack Obama and resurrecting her bid for the White House. Sen. John McCain powered past his Republican rivals and back into contention for the GOP nomination.

    Clinton's victory capped a comeback from last week's third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses and raised the possibility of a long battle for the party nomination between the most viable black candidate in history and the former first lady, who is seeking to become the first woman to occupy the Oval Office.

    McCain's triumph scrambled the Republican race as well.

    "We showed this country what a real comeback looks like," the Arizona senator told The Associated Press in an interview as he savored his triumph. "We're going to move on to Michigan and South Carolina and win the nomination."

    Later, he told cheering supporters that together, "we have taken a step, but only a first step toward repairing the broken politics of the past and restoring the trust of the American people in their government."

    McCain rode a wave of support from independent voters to defeat former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, a showing that reprised the senator's victory in the traditional first-in-the-nation primary in 2000.

    It was a bitter blow for Romney, who spent millions of dollars of his own money in hopes of winning the kickoff Iowa caucuses and the first primary—and finished second in both. Even so, the businessman-turned politician said he would meet McCain next week in the Michigan primary, and he cast himself as just what the country needed to fix Washington. "I don't care who gets the credit, Republican or Democrat. I've got no scores to settle," he told supporters.

    it's close for hillary and for all the candidates with a shot, go mccain. i just think he'd do the best of the repubs listed and likely dems.

    doesn't lieberman back mccain?

    Romney's finished now. He put all his money and efforts into winning these two states and starting a wave of momentum that would carry him through to Super Tuesday.

    Now all his money could buy was a second place finish in both.

    Rudy's still in a good position, I think. Huckabee should also be pleased finishing a strong 3rd. McCain, of course, is looking strong as well. Fred's finished. Paul never really had a chance.


    On the Democrat side, the Breck girl should drop out now and leave it to Obama and Hillary to slug it out.

    I generally like McCain but 8 years ago was his time and he let Bu****es scumbag him out of the job. Now he is 71 and has real issues sustaining anything over a stated period.

    I expect it is Guiliani versus Huckabee on the Repub side.

    McCain will burn out. That is what happened last time, despite Jterrels historical revisionism. He just is not exciting or charismatic enough, or able to really rally the conservatives- and that is what you need to do to win on the Repub side. Just like no moderate will win the Dem nomination.

    Interesting - ALL the polls said Obama would win easily. Just goes to show how much THEY are worth.

    The report I heard was approximately 260,000 dems and 240,00 repubs...

    Pretty large turnout on both sides...

    Now it was only around 75-80% votes in at the time I seen this, so take it with a grain of salt.

    However the two top Dems had 20K apiece more votes than the 2 top Repubs.

    I also think it was a larger amount of votes in the Iowa one as well but could be wrong.

    I don't have a clue if this means anything in the long haul...as the first two primaries could mean nothing. But so far it does seem as if the dems are getting more people out to vote.

    Like I said...does not mean anything in the long haul.

    Try more like 280K to 220K. i.e. 56% Dem 44% Rep.

    Hillary has over 110k votes by herself.
