|How wrong was I about the Barack momentum in New Hampshire? Way wrong...
My predictions in parentheses alongside the returns so far:
Obama 37% (45%)
Clinton 39 (35)
Edwards 17 (17)
Richardson 5 (3)
The race is too close to call with 26% of precincts reporting.
Update: Just got off the phone with a friend of mine in Michigan. She's dubious about the results so far and smells a rat. I don't know about that, but Bill Clinton was clearly smart to lower expectations and start sounding the dirges today, because the media is absolutely flummoxed by the results so far, given their breathless coverage of Obama thus far. I think Chris Matthews' head is going to explode. And he had given his triumphant Obama speech earlier today and everything -- speculating on how big a blow-out it would be. To be honest, I was looking for a big margin for Barack myself.
Let's see how the rest of those returns come in...
