Senator John Edwards (D-SC) is already beating up on poor Ms. Hilary (which is probably more of a hobby than a strategy) but not because she is the candidate for him to beat in the Primary election:
I think he sees her as the candidate to beat for the VP slot on Senator Obamaâ€™s Presidential ticket next fall.
But maybe little Eddie should be careful: What if it becomes Hilaryâ€™s Presidential ticket? Seriously, tonightâ€™s battle in New Hampshire is only the second of many Primary elections to comeâ€”itâ€™s still anybodyâ€™s game and right now, Hilary is in the lead!
Gee whiz, Senator McCain is winning (according to FOX News but only 14% precincts are reporting as of 8:30 EST) in NH just like he did in 2000...you know, before he lost the nomination to Bush II. Remember: New Hampshire has an extraordinarily large number of registered Independent voters. Registered Independents in NH can vote for any candidate, Republican or Democrat...or Green Party, or Peace and Freedom party, or Vampires...either way, they enjoy the benefits of Open Primary selection.
(Not kidding, remember that kooky guy who ran for office in Minnesota as a Vampire?
Yeah, the freaks come out at night...)
The only thing keeping McCain alive ANYWHERE is the fact that he backed off
his ridiculous position on illegal immigration. He stopped playing patty-cake with Ted Kennedy and started listening to all the conservatives who oppose
I haven`t heard him say "path to citizenship
" or "undocumented workers
" in ages which for him must have required at least a few rounds of good old fashioned shock therapy.
The night isn`t over—I`ll be back to report the totals in just a bit!
