She’s leading in early New Hampshire returns and Michael Barone (on FoxNews right now) thinks she could hold her lead.
Moving this post to the top. Right now, it’s 7:23 PM on the West Coast, 10:23 on the East Coast and it looks like Ms. Hillary’s going to pull this one out. A narrow victory which might have seemed disappointing a week ago, now is a big win for the former First Lady. And guarantees that this race will go to SuperDuper Tuesday, if not the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
GP UPDATE: I was curious as to how the lefty bloggers were viewing Hillary’s win tonight…. here’s a flavor from John Aravosis at AmericaBlog: “If Hillary wins this, first, it’s a huge victory for her. But. And the but is important. The debate will be as to how Obama had a double-digit lead coming into today and suddenly lost in a matter of hours? We suspect there will be two schools of thought – either Hillary won because New Hampshire is racist, or she won because she cried. Either way, not a great message. Having said that, if she wins, she wins, and it’s a win she desperately needed, so it’s still a good thing.”
