NH primary results
OK, I am a little surprised by how well Hillary did yesterday. Especially after Iowa, and given the exit polling.
But taking it together with McCain winning -- perhaps for all the talk about change, the NH voters wanted to go with the candidates with whom they had the most familiarity.
None of the candidates put it so starkly as this, but when Hillary says she's been about change for 35 years, then his tends to show that she is no longer part of the change, but part of what we want to change from.
Reverting to Clintonism is not change. We've been there before. Bush II, the sequel, was not as good as the original, even if Bush II had a longer run. I don't expect Clinton II to be any better.
I can hardly imagine voting for Hillary Clinton for president. If McCain is the Republican nominee, maybe I won't have to. I had been thinking that McCain's time had come and gone, that his time was 2000. I think we would be better off if he had been elected President in 2000. Since then, he has become more establishment, which means he embraced all the crap that we need to put behind us. Bah, when I put it like that, why would I vote for him either.
