Well, I think the big loser was Hillary. Coming in third was a big disappointment. Obama looks to be stronger than ever now, but it's still far from over. I wouldn't count the Clinton's out in any election. They'll use any underhanded trick in the book to get back on top. But, hopefully, the younger voters in the Democratic Party are ready to move on and be done with the Clintons. That's certainly what the exit polling showed, and all I can to that is "Thank God."
As for the Republicans, it's still wide open. Mike Huckabee will not win New Hampshire, so I think you'll still have 6 candidates in play when Super Tuesday arrives. Unless, Ron Paul can vault over Fred Thompson. Then, Thompson may drop out. Paul definitely did better than expected, and better than his poll numbers suggested.
As commentator Greta van Sustern said: "Ten per cent is not insignificant - that's a huge number. Here you have a candidate that 10 per cent of the people caucused in his party really want him and it's not like he's an insignificant player. He didn't just drop in yesterday to the process, he has been running for president for a long time, and certainly many of the issues he's raised are rather provocative and certainly stimulate the debate; that's not a bad thing."
Can Paul improve his standing in New Hampshire? He should, because the demographic supports his ideas better. If he could move from fifth place to fourth place there, it would be a positive step for his campaign, but he really needs to jump to third I think, in order to get more media coverage.
