A Campaign Retools to Seek Second Clinton Comeback  —  MANCHESTER, N.H. — Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton have been in career-threatening scrapes before, but never quite like the one they face in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, when nothing less than their would-be dynasty will be on the line.
Dan Balz / The Trail:
Will N.H. Be Obama Territory, Too?  —  NASHUA, N.H. — There was a sense of urgency in Hillary Clinton's voice when she opened her first post-Iowa rally in an airplane hangar early Friday morning — and a look of concern on the face of the man who introduced her, former President Bill Clinton.

Clinton: Obama's Too Liberal  —  Hillary Clinton's campaign seems determined to convince Barack Obama's detractors in the blogosphere that he is so a liberal after all:  —  Progressive record?  Heaven forbid!  I thought he didn't have experience.  —  The Tom Edsall article I got …
David Montero / Rocky Mountain News:
Rocky blogger Major Andrew Olmsted killed in Iraq  —  He was the first casualty for 2008 in Iraq.  And a small part of Maj. Andrew Olmsted likely would've chuckled at that fact.  It would be droll and play into his sense of self-deprecation.  —  But for everyone else, the news would be devastating.
Andrew Olmsted:
Final Post  —  “I am leaving this message for you because it appears I must leave sooner than I intended.  I would have preferred to say this in person, but since I cannot, let me say it here."  —  G'Kar, Babylon 5  —  “Only the dead have seen the end of war."  —  Plato*

WTF?  —  Okay, I could come up with a few good snarky lines on this one.  But I'll settle for someone just explaining to me what the hell Mike Huckabee's talking about.  —  TPMer Eric Kleefeld and I were chatting this evening about whether everyone's underestimating Huckabee's chances in this race.

Obama: Ecstasy & Agony  —  This is just a late Friday night prediction.  But after reading this regrettable excess from Ezra Klein as well as all of the more reasonable but nonetheless hopeful, proud, idealistic and sincere sentiments of pride and well-wishing for Obama as the first serious …
Discussion: Salon and Daily Pundit
Matt Stoller / Open Left:
Turnout Thoughts  —  I am still gathering my thoughts on Obama's win.  In all likelihood, his vote count is lower than actual turnout for his candidacy due to the excessive weighting of rural precincts that went for Edwards.  And while Obama performed fantastically, Clinton and Edwards …
Robin Koerner / The Moderate Voice:
Obama: The World's Candidate  —  Watching is running a multiple feature of global stories about the candidate who has the world's attention - Obama.  He is has the world's attention not because he is personally more interesting than any other candidate, but because he is symbolically the most important - and by far.
Linda Greenhouse / New York Times:

The Corner:
