Clinton Projected To Win in New Hampshire

After falling behind by double digits, and with stories out of Clinton’s camp suggesting even they were expecting a serious defeat, Hillary Clinton is now projected to win in New Hampshire. While narrow, her victory will have more impact after she had appeared to be facing a serious defeat.

As for the posts at this blog predicting a win for Obama, all I can do is fall back on the Ron Paul defense and say I am not responsible for them. Those projections were all written by ghost bloggers, whose posts I did not read. Posts here carry various levels of approval. Those which turn out to be correct are written entirely by me, while incorrect predictions are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed. I have never written such words and denounce such small-minded thoughts.

Some might not buy my use of the Paul defense. They might say that if an isolated post had predicted an Obama win they might believe it was ghost written without my knowledge. However, when posts here repeatedly gave the same view, they find it impossible to believe that such posts do not in some way reflect my beliefs. In response to these skeptics of my defense, all I can answer is “exactly.”

    If it wasn’t for all the women….Who’s idea was it to let them vote anyway? 😉

    It will be interesting to see what happens now (in Nevada). One would think that Edwards’ continued decline would help the more populist Clinton, but I think Obama did better than her with the unions in Iowa and has picked up the endorsement of the SEIU and the Culinary workers. I’m cautiously optimistic.

    The Edwards effect was something I planned to comment on in a post soon. The conventional wisdom is that Edwards takes votes from Obama, splitting the vote of those who want change. However different people compare the candidates by different criteria, and there is definitely a population which would move from Clinton to Edwards. I’m hoping that Edwards’ initial decline helped Clinton, but that as he further declines we get to the types of people who are more likely to shift to Obama.
