What Did New Hampshire Think?

It's all well and good for those of us around the nation and internet to weigh in on tonight's Democratic debate. But, what matters for Tuesday is what New Hampshire voters think...and what they will read in their morning papers.

All of the Democratic candidates looked tired tonight. No wonder. Check out Hillary's day that appeared in the Concord Monitor(describing how she spent it giving up the stump speeches and instead answering questions from voters for hours.)

Here's Sunday's candidate schedule.

    Hillary as well as the Washington Post and NY Times.  No one bashed her at all -

    I was harsh on Richardson while watching becuase I wanted to hear the top two - but having reviewed some of his somments I think he was pretty fair.

    in Iraq rang true to me.  Obama seems focused getting the Iraqi government in gear b/4 we leave.  Hasn't that been the plan for quite awhile now?

    He is a decent person.  Go to the Charlie Rose website some time and watch an interview with him there - a couple of months ago I think  - He came across very well.

    I also liked the gentle comments he made about experience; he made Obama and Edwards look like little boys with his retort about why it matters.

    to prepare to like nominee Obama. I just saw a segment on CNN where they said that the Clinton campaign is scared and that they had to bus in part of their crowds today from neighboring states.

    All I can say is, I will get some enjoyment out of watching some of the blogs explode when he compromises away some of the things we hold dear. Maybe he will prove me wrong and I certainly hope so.

    see this article above...the national media has been terrible to her. In Iowa, the event I attended in Cedar Rapids was packed beyond capacity and at her post-caucus party at the hotel where she gave her speech, the crowd spilled out into the halls.  

    I'm growing  very skeptical of tv news...both network and cable.

    will be interesting to see how different the teevee and print media end up in their reviews.  Liek I said below - major news outlets were positive.

    them this is a ton of emotional stress and they don't even get to sleep.  This process is a bit absurd.  I hope we reform out primary process.
