Quite a surprising result on the Democratic side. Clinton stemmed the tide. And McCain...once given up for dead, is back. I wonder if independents, of which there are many in New Hampshire, didn't drift back to the Republican side to vote for McCain 1) once they decided Obama was going to win and 2) in order to derail Romney, who apparently isn't very well-liked in the state. You also wonder if Obama's supporters, some of the new ones, might have lost some motivation once the polls yesterday showed him winning going away.
